First Industrial Maintenance class graduates

Posted: Friday, December 8, 2017

The Learning Center, 2201 N. Jefferson Street, celebrated the first Industrial Maintenance class graduation on Tuesday, December 5. Six employees from the area graduated from the class.

The Ivy Tech Industrial Maintenance Skill-Link Training Program had six students, representing three different local employers. Novae Corporation, Our Sunday Visitor and Nurture Soap sent employees to the training.

All participants in the 26-week course earned the OSHA 10 training certification. Three participants chose to earn a Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) certification and two participants earned an Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE) certification. The course covered a variety of topics, including safety, total productive maintenance, basic measurements, precision measurements, statistical process control, quality control tools and print reading.

Funding for the course came from a combination of Skill-Link training dollars from Northeast Indiana Works and the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA) grant.
