The primary source of funding for non-academic credit training is the West Virginia Higher Education for Adult Part-time Student Workforce Development Component Grant (HEAPS WD). This financial aid is a direct payment only to KVCTC after a student's first day in the selected training.  It does not qualify a student for associated living expense loans.  Additional information:
