New TechCred Application Period Opens Jan. 4

It’s time to ensure your workforce is prepared for the post-pandemic economy. To assist with this effort, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted has announced the seventh round of Ohio TechCred applications will open Jan. 4.

This popular program reimburses employers up to $2,000 per employee (up to $30,000 total per employer per round) to upskill employees who earn technology-focused credentials.

Manufacturing is a key industry focus of TechCred. At last check, manufacturers accounted for more than half of approved applications.

Businesses with employees who have completed their TechCred training are reminded to submit proof of credential completion to receive reimbursement. See the OMA’s one-pager for more details on the January funding round. 12/7/2020
