Training Session 2 – Graduation!

A big congrats to these ten students for completing their ten-week training program on June 22! Many students shared their personal experience at graduation before hearing a pep-talk from Ben Trockman from Old National Bank. We wish each of them the best of luck as they begin their job search with their Community Rehabilitation Provider back in their hometown. Each student showcased their skill set while attending EGTI, and it is our wish that students continue to push themselves to reach their fullest potential.

Training Session 3 – Welcome

EGTI staff welcomed ten vibrant students on Sunday! These ten students will be training for the next 13 weeks as Kitchen Cooks, Patient Transporters, and Front Desk Agents. We are eager to welcome four additional students on July 29. These four students will complete a ten-week training program. We encourage you to follow their journey on our social media sites: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Welcome, Zach Runyan

We are eager to introduce our new instructor, Zach Runyan!
