Inside Indiana Business: IWU launches tech training initiative
September 13, 2022

MARION, Ind.  Indiana Wesleyan University is adding to its technical training offerings with a focus on adult learners and military veterans. The university is partnering with Florida-based tech talent accelerator SkillStorm to provide a variety of certification courses in what they call high-demand enterprise areas such as Amazon Web Services, Salesforce and Pega.

“We’re hearing a lot more about needs in the workforce about having these technical skills,” said Kevin Wachtel, executive director of partnership development for IWU. “[SkillStorm] really delivers high-end versions of that, and we saw that there was a really excellent, high-quality addition to our portfolio to offer with them.”

Andy Miller, vice president of innovation and partnerships at IWU, tells Inside Indiana Business the initiative is part of a skills-based approach to serving adult learners.

“Technology is interesting in the fact that you often don’t need a degree to be successful, and that’s why a skills sort of approach really does fit this niche market well,” said Miller. “We feel that filling that need with something like this really does serve our market well and kind of fits the needs of that particular industry that’s needing talent quickly and for those that want to get into it in an affordable way.”
