New Round of TechCred Could Boost Your Apprenticeship Program

A new round is about to begin for Ohio TechCred, the popular program that reimburses employers that upskill employees who earn technology-focused credentials. The next TechCred application period will open April 1 and close April 30 at 3 p.m. (See the OMA’s two-pager for more details.)

Earlier this month, we celebrated the success of the Alliance for Working Together (AWT) — an OMA-endorsed industry sector partnership. AWT’s registered apprenticeship program uses TechCred to make its apprenticeship program available to employers for no cost. Check out this case study on AWT’s apprenticeship program, then see this step-by-step guide on how to submit a TechCred application to make your apprenticeship program eligible, too.
