    Standard and custom training classes are offered in a variety of formats and subject matter targeted to meet the needs of Indiana's employers and employees to support the operations of your organization.

  • Classes to Upskill Your Workforce

    If our current employee training classes don't meet your needs, we also specialize in developing custom training for our employer partners. We can develop skills training on a variety of topics—management and supervisory skills, healthcare, technology, safety, information technology, and many more— and each one can be customized to be offered how, when, and where you need it.

  • Support Your Employees' Education Through Deferred Tuition Payments

    Consider providing a path for your employees to earn a college degree or certificate at minimal or zero upfront cost in a field of study you have approved. Participating in a deferred tuition payment program such as Achieve Your Degree allows your employees to take classes and gain skills without paying tuition upfront. Contact your local Employer Consultant to set up deferred tuition.

    Employer-Sponsored Deferred Payments

  • Get Reimbursed up to $5,000 per Employee for Approved Training

    Next Level Jobs is part of Governor Holcomb’s Next Level Indiana agenda to continue the positive momentum of our state. Next Level Jobs provides employers with reimbursements for training their employees by reimbursing an employer for up to $5,000 per trained employee who is trained, hired, and retained for six months, up to $50,000 per employer.

    Employers within any qualified occupations in high-demand sectors like IT and Business Services; Building and Construction; Health and Life Sciences; Advanced Manufacturing; Agriculture; and Transportation and Logistics can take advantage of this opportunity for each current or new employee. As an approved training provider, Ivy Tech understands the requirements of the grant and will work alongside you and your local WorkOne/Service Provider to develop training that meets your exact needs.
