Ivy Tech selected the classes in collaboration with employers and other partners to ensure they are aligned with existing and future job opportunities, according to a press release. Support from companies like Amatrol and Autodesk Inc. underscores the degree to which Indiana’s employers have an immediate and ongoing need for skilled workers.

In an effort to encourage those who seek to improve their skills, the college is allowing participants to take more than one free class. The classes are offered online, and there are no regular course meeting times, allowing participants to work at their own pace.

There is no need to fill out an application and no prerequisites.
