How does TechCred benefit Ohio workers and businesses?

The Ohio TechCred Program, sponsored by the State of Ohio’s Office of Workforce Transformation, connects businesses with the talent they need and gives employees the ability to earn industry-recognized, technology-focused credentials, better preparing them for a job in today’s advanced, technology-infused economy. 

Through TechCred, businesses can identify the specific qualifications they need and employees they want to upskill toward a more advanced position. In partnership with a training provider, the employer can apply online at TechCred.Ohio.Gov. The state will reimburse up to $2,000 for training upon completion of a credential (maximum of $30,000 per funding round).
