KOKOMO – Registration for classes that start Jan. 13 and March 16 is open at Ivy Tech Community College and the admissions offices at Kokomo and Logansport locations are available Mondays through Fridays to help prospective students get ready to start class.
“With our expanded list of eight-week courses, Ivy Tech is offering more options for people to kick-start their journey to a better future,” said Kates Brommeland, admissions director for Ivy Tech’s Kokomo Service Area. “It means students can pick the start date that best fits their schedule to begin – or resume – the college education that can prepare them for better and higher-paying jobs.”
Brommeland added that many students have had great success in eight-week courses. “The format allows students to concentrate on fewer courses at a time while working to complete certificates and degrees more efficiently,” she said.
The increase in eight-week course opportunities also supports Indiana’s Workforce Ready Grant program, which pays for training for qualified students in selected high-demand areas. Ivy Tech Kokomo now offers certificates and technical certificates covered by the WRG in more than 40 career fields in the areas of information technology and business services, transportation and logistics, health sciences, advanced manufacturing, and building and construction.
Students can register at Ivy Tech Kokomo, 1815 E. Morgan St., from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays. and Ivy Tech Logansport, 1 Ivy Tech Way, Logansport, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays.
