HAMILTON, Ind. — Through a new partnership with Trine University, the “Tritons” at
Triton Metal Products will have access to expanded educational opportunities.
The industry-leading metal fabrication company also will receive free access to job
posting and recruitment opportunities, attracting Trine students and alumni, as well
as access to Trine innovation 1, which provides marketing and expansion strategies,
assistance with new products, and/or improvements to current processes or products.
“As a training and learning facility, anyone who becomes a Triton has the opportunity
to walk in the door with no experience and possess the desire to learn and be trained
for advancement and growth. The support from every Triton in developing our talent
is second to none. Partnering with Trine University is our next step in assisting
our Tritons to reach their dreams and full potential,” said Tricia Baughman, chief
financial officer for Triton Metal Products.
“Triton Metal Products’ culture of valuing those who work there is evident, beginning
with its statement that there are no employees, only Tritons,” said Earl D. Brooks
II, Ph.D., Trine University president. “We are proud that the company recognizes the
benefit that education through Trine University can give to Tritons, and look forward
to helping assisting them in learning new skills and advancing in their careers.”
Through the partnership with Trine, Triton Metal Products will be able to create customized
courses, available online and on-site. Employees will be provided support in obtaining
educational grants and scholarships, reducing education expenses for the team at Triton.
Tritons will receive added support to ensure those enrolled with Trine are utilizing
24/7 access to tutoring, along with all other available academic and financial aid
services. Triton co-workers can take advantage of more than 45 courses using open
education resources, eliminating textbook and materials costs, and can receive a free
application for enrollment and free unofficial education transfer credit evaluation.
Thanks to TrineOnline’s generous education credit acceptance program, Tritons will
be eligible to transfer up to 90 education credit hours toward a bachelor's degree
program, including their unique on-the-job training experience. This means fewer courses
are needed to complete a degree; therefore, they have less financial impact, and graduation
is possible in as little as one year. In addition, students are given the opportunity
to earn graduate credits while working on a bachelor's degree through TrineOnline’s
combined degree programs.
