Lt. Governor Jon Husted, who serves as Director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, announced that following the August round of TechCred, 288 Ohio companies have been approved for funding, which will help their current and incoming workforce earn the skills needed for the increasingly tech-infused economy.
The most recent TechCred application period closed at the end of August. During this round, 288 Ohio employers were approved for funding, resulting in Ohio employees earning up to 4,468 technology-focused credentials. The August round was record-setting, approving 1,227 more credentials than were approved in June 2020, which previously held the award record.
Since the program’s start, a total of 983 Ohio employers have been approved for funding, supporting the earning of 11,941 tech-focused credentials by Ohio employees. This round marks a milestone as funding has been approved for over 10,000 credentials.
The sixth TechCred application period closes on October 30th.
