Lt. Governor Jon Husted, who serves as director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, announced this week that Ohio businesses looking to upskill their workforce can begin applying for the tenth round of TechCred beginning Aug. 1. The application period will close on Aug. 31.
Since the program started, 1,310 Ohio employers have been approved for funding, supporting the earning of 23,723 tech-focused credentials by employees. At last check, manufacturers — including several smaller manufacturers — accounted for more than half of all approved applications. The OMA has published this guidance to help members learn more about TechCred and how to apply. 7/21/2021
