They were given a tour of the production, quality control, and packaging departments of the company, which is one of the largest employers in Region 8 and a leading manufacturer of minimally invasive medical devices in the world. WorkOne, Monroe County Community School Corporation, and Ivy Tech are partnering with Cook to provide its employees an adult education class for its employees who wish to progress on their career paths within the company. Specifically, the class will enable employees to study for the Indiana High School Equivalency Diploma, the National Career Readiness Certificate, and Accuplacer so they have the credentials they need to enter production jobs at Cook and continue their education at Ivy Tech.
