What is TechCred?  

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.

Ohio TechCred
Launched by Lt. Gov. Jon Husted and the Office of Workforce Transformation, the TechCred program aims to enhance Ohio's skilled workforce by reimbursing employers who help their employees earn industry-recognized, technology-focused credentials. Boosting Ohio's manufacturing talent pool is an important goal of the program.

  • Businesses will identify the specific, technology-centric qualifications they need, as well as the employee(s) they want to upskill.
  • Credentials take a year or less to complete, and they prepare current and future employees for the technology jobs Ohio employers need.
  • The state will reimburse up to $2,000 per credential upon completion. (Limited to one reimbursement per employee in each funding round.)
  • Employers must partner with a training provider and apply online to qualify for reimbursement. Individuals listed in an employer’s application must be Ohio residents with a verifiable address.
  • According to program guidelines, employers may receive up to $30,000 per funding round. Businesses of all sizes are eligible.
Businesses of all sizes, from any industry, are eligible for up to $30,000 per round and up to $180,000 per year. To allow businesses more time to plan their employee trainings in advance, the TechCred application will officially open on a bimonthly basis for the remainder of 2022.

Below are the 2022 application dates:
  • Round 13: March 1st – 31st
