INDIANAPOLIS (Inside INdiana Business) — Washington Township Adult Education is offering a free program to Marion County residents who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. The expanded job-skills training is available for careers in high-demand industries, with maximum benefits available for those who enroll by Nov. 15.

Courses are available online and in-person in a variety of fields, including dental assisting, pharmacy tech, construction, appliance repair, IT security specialist and several more. Washington Township Adult Education says those who don’t have a high school diploma are able to take the high school equivalency test for free.

EmployIndy has allocated $1 million for virtual classes, training and the HSE testing.

“Unfortunately, COVID-19 has hit those with only a high school diploma or less the hardest,” said Angela Carr Klitzsch, president and CEO of Employ Indy. “This program will help those individuals by providing training in much-needed career sectors, as well as allow employers to have access to a greater pool of talent.”

The program also offers English classes, preparation for citizenship tests and adult basic education classes. Click here for more information.
