Ohio’s TechCred application opens Oct. 1 and will close Oct. 29. 

TechCred helps businesses address their workforce needs by upskilling current and prospective employees. Businesses of all sizes, from any industry, can apply online at TechCred.Ohio.gov and the state will reimburse up to $2,000 for each training upon completion of a credential. Employers must identify the specific skills they need, the number of employees they want to upskill, and which training provider they want to use.

Since the program launched in 2019, 1,419 Ohio employers have been approved funding up to 26,872 tech-focused credentials. The state budget allocated funding for an additional 20,000 credentials through the program in each of the next two fiscal years to help Ohio businesses keep up with the demands of new technologies.
