This fall, Ivy Tech Community College is launching the Institute of Technology, Ivy, a group of programs designed to get people the skills and knowledge they need to find a mid-level entry position in manufacturing in just eight months.
The Institute focuses on the skills and knowledge necessary for industries that are high in demand: welding, machine tool, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
The Welding Institute program offered at the Central and Eastern Region Education Center in Anderson Ebbertt the first cohort program beginning October 3.
Each program in the Institute of Technology, Ivy is a 30-week program that includes instruction and practical laboratory activities. Classes meet 30 hours per week (six hours per day), so that students are held in just eight months. The programs are focused on technology, mathematics, reading and writing exercises integrated into class projects rather than a traditional classroom. The programs prepare students for entry-level and intermediate skilled jobs. After completing the program, students take exams for certification in the industry. Credits can also be applied to the technical certificate and associate degree programs in applied science at Ivy Tech
Developed in collaboration with the American Welding Society, Welding Institute Ivy Tech offers instruction and training in laboratory safety and OSHA requirements, processes and welding equipment, welding metallurgy, and welding codes and certifications. The course covers a variety of welding techniques, blueprint reading, and the care and maintenance of welding equipment. At the end of the program, students will be prepared to test numerous welding certifications recognized by the sense given to AWS and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).
“Welding positions in manufacturing is expected to continue to grow as demand for products grows. Ivy Tech is the best way to begin a career in manufacturing,” said Robert Richwin, Welding Institute program director.
Eligibility is the same for students of the Institute as it is for the general population of Ivy Tech College. Once the process of student enrollment in general, prospective students must complete the Institute and submit an application for admission to the Institute.
