Ivy Tech, IPIC snare $10M in job-training grants

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Ivy Tech Community College and the Indianapolis Private Industry Council will take advantage of nearly $10 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Labor to help train some 1,700 unemployed and underemployed Indiana workers.

Announced Friday by U.S. Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., the funding comes as part of the job-training grant program authorized by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

With $5 million in grant money, Indianapolis-based Ivy Tech will implement a statewide project to train more than 1,100 unemployed and displaced workers for careers in advanced manufacturing; transportation, distribution and logistics; and information technology.

The private industry council, which received $4.8 million, will focus on strengthening the pipeline of workers in health-care fields, with an emphasis on elevating workers into critical-to-fill positions in registered nursing.

Training will be provided through a nursing degree program taught on the campus of Clarian Health Partners. Simultaneously, the project will recruit dislocated and unemployed workers for credentialed education in various health-care sectors. The council expects to train 600 workers through the project.

    I wonder if these grants will help sharpen sales skills. Companies like http://www.86percentvisual.com offer solid professional training and may lead to greater incomes for entry level sales people trying to get new jobs. I found them helpful in my success.

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
