Manufacturing Initiatives

Blue River Career Programs is working with our local community and employers on some programming to meet the needs of our manufacturers. Currently, the primary focus is on an apprenticeship program for Machine Maintenance Repair. If you are an industry looking for information on this initiative, please call the career center at 317.392.4191 ext. 1108.IvyTechLogo

BRCP is also excited to announce that beginning in January 2015, Ivy Tech Community College- Central Indiana will be offering the following advanced manufacturing courses at our site:

Key Principles of Adv Manu – 50614 – ADMF 101 – GAH

Introduces the basic principles and practices of Safety and Quality used in manufacturing environments. Safety instruction covers topics including; Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), confined space, lock out/tag out, zero energy state, hazardous materials, storage of flammable materials, storage of fuel gas and high pressure gas cylinders, portable powered tool safety, hand tool safety, record keeping, training, employer enforcement of safety regulations, and right to know This course also covers current quality control concepts and techniques in industry with emphasis on modern manufacturing requirements. Topics of instruction include basic statistical and probability theory, sampling techniques, process control charts, nature of variation, histograms, attributes and variable charts. This course will use lecture, lab, online simulation and programming to prepare students for Certified Production Technician Testing through Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC).
