The Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation is determining an appropriate path forward for the Ohio TechCred program as a result of COVID-19, including a recommendation that only online trainings be eligible for reimbursement.
TechCred helps Ohioans learn new skills and helps employers build a stronger workforce with the skills needed in a technology-infused economy. These technology-focused credentials take a year or less to complete and prepare current and future employees for the technology jobs Ohio employers need. Businesses that submit successful applications will be reimbursed, up to $2,000 per credential, when current or prospective employees complete technology-focused credentials.
The application period for Round 3 of the program ended March 31, and businesses will be notified soon if their applications were accepted. An announcement about the opening of Round 4 is coming. For more information, visit this website. 5/15/2020
