Those looking to sharpen their skills can do so for free through Ivy Tech Community College.
Daniela Vidal, chancellor of Ivy Tech Community College’s Evansville campus, announced on July 16 that there are now even more free classes that Evansville residents can take in order to gain new skills, earn a certificate or technical certificate, or as an entryway into an associate degree.
"There's offerings in areas of high growth and high wage, like advanced manufacturing, health sectors, information technology, and transportation and logistics," said Chancellor Vidal. "It can be from a certificate program to an associate degree."
Classes will be offered on the main campus in Evansville and also at the Princeton and Tell City Career & Technology Centers. Among those opportunities include CDL classes in Evansville and Dubois County, Certified Nursing Assistant training in Tell City and Princeton; and welding in Newburgh.
The wide variety of educational opportunities are being offered through the state's "Next Level Jobs" Initiative.
Enrollment is available through a drive-up event at the Evansville campus on July 29 and 30 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
For a completely virtual experience, potential students can RSVP to Ivy Tech’s Virtual Express Enrollment Day July 22, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
