Build your company's talent pipeline and strengthen your workforce with training and professional development for maximum impact.

By 2025, over 60% of Indiana jobs will require postsecondary educated workers across a variety of degree types. Currently, only 48.3% of Hoosiers currently hold some level of postsecondary education.
