An Accelerated Way to Gain New Skills

Working adults have multiple demands on their time, and completing a college degree or certificate may not be something you can consider at this point. Ivy Tech’s skills training classes (sometimes called workforce training, professional development, continuing education, or certification classes) are open to anyone in the community. Each class is designed to help you stay relevant with new trends, skills, or certifications.
