Ohio’s TechCred Funded 367 Employers in May

COLUMBUS, Ohio – In May, 367 employers were approved for funding through Ohio’s TechCred program, Lt. Gov. Jon Husted announced Monday.

The funding will provide the opportunity for Ohioans to earn 4,297 tech-focused credentials, said Husted, who serves as director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation.

“Ohio’s economy is growing, and we need to build a skilled workforce to sustain that growth,” Husted said. “Having a program like TechCred is very popular with Ohio employers who are using it to help upskill or reskill their workforce so they can continue to grow.”

This latest round marks the 20th application period of the program. The current application period for businesses opened July 3 and will close at 3 p.m. July 31. Employers can apply HERE.
