Thursday Marks Deadline for Employers to Apply for Training Reimbursement Through TechCred

Ohio manufacturers have until this Thursday, Oct. 31, to apply for the state’s new TechCred program, which reimburses employers up to $2,000 for each current or new employee who earns an industry-recognized, technology-focused credential. Employers can receive up to a total of $30,000 per funding round. This is the first round under TechCred.

On a related note, remember that manufacturers who hire interns through the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) High School Internship Program can be reimbursed 50% of student wages — up to a maximum of $1,500 per student. Funding is available through Sept. 30, 2020 or until funds are expended, whichever comes first. 10/23/2019
