LC graduates its Industrial Maintenance class

Posted: Friday, September 6, 2019

The Huntington County Community Learning Center hosted its fourth Industrial Maintenance graduation on Friday, August 30. The course was coordination by Ivy Tech Workforce Alignment, and focused on Industrial Maintenance troubleshooting.

“The LC was happy to partner with Ivy Tech Community College to offer this course,” said Tiffanney Drummond, Huntington County Community Learning Center Director. “This course allowed members of our community to learn more about industrial maintenance locally, with content they could immediately take back to work with them and implement.”

The course began on Thursday, February 28 at the Learning Center, and met on Thursday and Friday each week from 4 to 8 p.m. The 25-week class covered a variety of topics, including safety, print reading, pneumatic power systems, basic electrical circuits and basic programmable logic controller (PLC) programming. Thirteen students took advantage of the course.

The Industrial Maintenance class qualified for the Next Level Jobs Workforce Ready Grant. Students who met specific criteria could qualify for the entire $4,200 cost of tuition to be covered.

The LC will next be offering a CNC machining course this fall. For more information, please contact the LC at (260) 356-2858, option 2.
