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. "This was a very localized, Indiana issue," he said. As in, Indiana failed to expand Medicaid to cover its poor citizens resulting in the loss of essential medical services, including this EMS company. Well done, Indiana GOP. Here are the real death panels: GOP state governments who refuse to expand Medicaid for political reasons.

  2. In the "one for all, all for none" socialist doctrine the sick die...this plus obama"care" equates to caucasian genocide plus pushed flight to cities thus further eroding the conservative base and the continualed spiral toward complete liberal/progressive/marxist America.

  3. There is a simple reason why WISH is not reporting on this story. LIN has others stations in different markets that are affiliated with CBS. Reporting about CBS blindsiding WISH/LIN due to CBS's greed and bullying tatics would risk any future negoations LIN will have with CBS in other markets.

  5. How did Columbus, Ohio pull off a car share service without a single dollar of public subsidies? They must not have a mayor who is on the take like Indianapolis. Daimler Benz offers Columbus residents their Smart Cars on a market-driven basis: "This has some neat features. Cars don’t have to be picked up and dropped off at fixed points. You find one with your smart phone based on GPS, and drop it off anywhere in the service area you can find a spot – even at a meter. These cars aren’t required to feed the meter so you get free on street parking while using them. I was told this system was put in place on a market basis without subsidies – and that the vendor actually pays the city for the use of the meters." http://www.urbanophile.com/2014/05/26/checking-in-on-columbus/
