December 21, 2017 / Registration open for Spring 2018 industrial maintenance training

JASPER, Ind. - Vincennes University’s Continuing Education Program, in partnership with VU’s Business and Industry Training, will offer short-term industrial maintenance training courses in Jasper starting in January. 

Courses offered in Industrial Maintenance will include basic pneumatics, basic hydraulics, AC/DC electrical systems, electric motor controls, and mechanical drives. Quality Training courses include root cause analysis, basic quality concepts, value stream mapping, and introduction to failure modes and effects analysis. These courses were specifically chosen and scheduled to meet the needs of Dubois County area employers.

According to Jerry Ruble, director of VU’s Industrial Maintenance Training program, these courses are for individuals looking to gain knowledge in current positions or learning skills to aid in job promotion. Wes Shelton, director of VU’s Metrology program, says that quality courses have been developed for individuals both new to the manufacturing environment, and those with some background in quality processes.

The Vincennes University Industrial Maintenance Training Programs offered in Jasper are designed so employees and students are off the work floor for a minimum amount of time. Courses are held during the work day and range from two consecutive days, to five days spread out over five weeks. Full information on course details, schedules, and fees is available at

Students seeking assistance with tuition and fees for Industrial Maintenance Training may qualify for Indiana’s Next Level Jobs initiative. Next Level Jobs is part of Governor Eric Holcomb’s Next Level Indiana agenda to continue the positive momentum of the state. Two million Hoosiers need additional training to compete in the 21st Century workforce, and there will be over a million job openings in Indiana due to retirements and the creation of new jobs in the next decade. For Hoosiers looking for a better-paying job or for employers looking for a better-skilled workforce, Indiana’s Next Level Jobs initiative can help.
