CARITAS is proud to offer workforce development opportunities through the CARITAS Works program. In addition to our five-week Works program, we also offer certification courses (6 hours) throughout the year for anyone who will operate sit-down forklifts (powered industrial trucks). Upon successful completion of the course and testing, the participant will receive both a wallet size and an 8 x 10 certificate valid in Virginia.
