Get Skills to Work

Welcome Veterans!

Ivy Tech Corporate College, the Alcoa Foundation and The Manufacturing Institute have partnered to offer FREE manufacturing training to veterans in Southwestern Indiana. The courses are geared towards those who have an interest in a career in Advanced Manufacturing. The program is open to all veterans, and there is no cost to apply or participate in the 16-week training program, which includes two courses. Those enrolled in the program, which begins Jan. 14, will attend two evenings a week, preparing for testing as a Certified Production Technician. Offered by the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC), the certification is an indication to employers that a job candidate has the necessary skills for a career in manufacturing.


 

This training in Evansville will provide a valuable first-step in qualifying for a job in advanced manufacturing. In fact, veterans who complete the training will receive interviews on April 3 with companies represented by the Tri-State Manufacturers' Alliance (TSMA), a service of The Chamber of Commerce of Southwest Indiana.


 

The sign-up process for students is beginning now, and similar offerings will also be available throughout the state at select Ivy Tech campuses as the program expands. After students complete the program, they can also continue with their studies at Ivy Tech. The classes will allow them to earn credits toward a degree or other certification.
