Workforce Development

Attention Employers

Employers who are interested in participating in Ohio’s TechCred program have a new opportunity to apply for funding to upskill their employees. The next online application period opens Monday, March 2, 2020, and runs through Tuesday, March 31, 2020.

Here are some key points about the state’s TechCred program:

  • Employers can receive up to $2,000 for each current or new employee who earns an industry-recognized, technology-focused credential — and up to $30,000 per funding round. Businesses of all sizes are eligible.
  • Hundreds of credentials have been added to the program in response to employer feedback. Here are the currently approved TechCred credentials. A significant number of certifications are manufacturing specific, including industrial maintenance and welding certifications.
  • Employers can request that unlisted credentials be added to the eligible list by submitting a TechCred application. Credentials will be considered by a panel of experts as each application is reviewed.

Those who apply for TechCred funding have good odds of success. Hundreds of employers have been awarded funding, and many of them are Ohio manufacturers.

Interested in applying? Visit the TechCred website and prepare to submit your application between March 2 and March 31.
