DANBURY, US: Praxair Inc (PX) said that it has expanded its Praxair skills pipeline workforce development program and will be working with Ivy Tech Community College in Indianapolis.

The new program will offer instruction, career support and professional development opportunities to approximately 50 students training to become advanced manufacturing technologists. After completing the one-year curriculum, students earn a certificate in industrial technology in addition to a number of other skills-based certifications. The program is being funded through a $100,000 contribution from Praxair’s global giving program, with a conditional training grant of approximately $100,000 from the Indiana Economic Development Corporation.

This program is the latest example of Praxair’s commitment to advancing STEM education. Including this newest offering, Praxair’s global giving program has provided more than $1 million in workforce development training through the Skills Pipeline program since 2014.

“Developing the right workforce with the right skills and building a feeder pool of talent is an imperative for us in PST. This will determine our success in the future. The best way we can make this happen is by developing these deep connections with our community,” said Pierre Luthi, president of Praxair surface technologies.

“We are excited to partner with Praxair to provide training for these high-wage, high-demand positions. This is a great model for industry to replicate, creating a pathway to grow and develop highly skilled employees,” added Sue Smith, VP for technology at Ivy Tech Community College.
