Ohio’s TechCred Program gives employers the chance to upskill current and future employees in today’s tech-infused economy. Employers who submit successful applications will be reimbursed up to $2,000 per credential when current or prospective employees complete eligible technology-focused credentials.
Any Ohio registered employer that employs Ohio resident W-2 employees is eligible to apply. Ohio employers may apply for reimbursement for credentialing of both current and/or prospective employees. Employers will not be required to identify specific individuals on the application for funding but will be required to identify employees who earned the approved credentials when completing the reimbursement request.
ABC Central Ohio is a NCCER training provider and is an eligible credentialing program for purposes of these grants. Current offerings in the electrical and HVAC trades are available for reimbursement, though any NCCER credential offered by ABC Central Ohio can be submitted to the TechCred program for review.
The next application period of the TechCred program will open June 1st and run through June 30th, allowing for another opportunity for companies to train current and/or incoming employees.
