(CRANE) - The WestGate@Crane Technology Park and Vincennes University are enrolling now for the new Electronics Fundamentals Certificate program with classes beginning on August 22nd.

Classes will be held at the Battery Innovation Center (BIC) as part of a partnership between, WestGate, Vincennes University, Daviess, Greene, Martin and Lawrence Counties.

This program was specifically chosen and designed to meet the needs of local employers.

According to Ben Wrightsman, COO of the BIC, "we struggle to get local, qualified technical workers who can perform in a high technology manufacturing environment. We typically have to recruit outside the region, however we have been fortunate enough to find a couple local team members. One of these team members is a graduate of the Vincennes University Electronics program. Our hope in the course of this program is to acquire 1-2 more personnel as direct hires and allow them to finish the coursework while working full time at the Battery Innovation Center."

The BIC is just one of many local employers who hire people with this skill set.

Vincennes University's Electronics Fundamentals Certificate program will provide students with a comprehensive introduction to all areas of electronics (AC/DC, digital circuits, and linear electronics) and hands-on use of multi-meters, oscilloscopes, function generators, power supplies, and soldering techniques in the lab.

To enroll in this program, no previous experience in electronics required. High school diploma or equivalent is required for registration (except current high school students), and all tools and parts needed for class are provided. Some students may have this certification paid in full with available grant funding.

For additional details on the program or to enroll, contact Kimberly Frazier at STIMULUS Engineering.
