EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Ivy Tech Community College will start a program next month at its Evansville campus where veterans can enroll for free in a 16-week training program to get skills needed for a career in manufacturing.
Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann was at a news conference Friday where a statewide coalition announced it was launching "Get Skills to Work," a program that includes training to help veterans. The Ivy Tech program is part of that.
As part of the launch in Indiana, Alcoa Foundation has agreed to provide funding for veterans to attend accelerated training classes in Evansville, which begin Jan. 14. Also, those who complete the program will receive interviews with area manufacturers through the Tri-State Manufacturers' Alliance.
Similar program will be available at other Ivy Tech campuses as the program expands.
