Job skills training at Ivy Tech Connersville

RICHMOND - Manufacturing Matters, the skills training program for high demand local manufacturing jobs taught by Ivy Tech Richmond Corporate College staff and WorkOne, is accepting applications for a Connersville class that starts May 12. Qualified applicants receive a full $2,600 scholarship for the 10 week, 172 hour manufacturing and work eligible training program. To qualify for the program applicants must complete WorkKeys testing, participate in an interview, pass a drug screening and commit to the training schedule.

The Connersville class is the fourth in this new program that provides fast track training for good local jobs available at area manufacturers. The program’s first class graduated January 31. Two more are underway. The training includes Safety; Quality and Measurement; Manufacturing Production; and Maintenance Awareness. Participants learn valuable skills and receive an orientation to what it’s like to work in manufacturing – equipping them to make better decisions in seeking employment. Those completing the course can sit for a national Certified Production Technician (CPT) certification.
