What is TechCred?

Ohio TechCred reimbursement of electrical maintenance training

TechCred reimburses businesses up to $2,000 per student for training in 20,000 technology-focused credentials.

Ohio’s TechCred program was developed to give businesses the chance to upskill current or future employees to help them qualify for a better job in today’s tech-infused economy.

If you need skilled labor, train current or future employees through this new program in partnership with ETS.  Go to Ohio.gov’s TechCred website for more info.

Employer Eligibility

Any Ohio employer registered with the secretary of state and with a physical location in Ohio that employs Ohio resident W-2 employees is eligible to apply. Employers of all sizes and in all industries are encouraged to apply.

Only one application will be accepted per employer per application period. Agencies of the State of Ohio are not eligible to receive reimbursement.

More TechCred info

In order to support the changing needs of Ohio businesses and workers during the economic recovery, the following changes have been made to the TechCred program:

  • To make TechCred more flexible, employers are no longer required to list employee names when applying for TechCred. Instead, they will identify the number of current or prospective employees they will have trained.
  • To account for possible staffing changes, employers who were awarded in the October 2019, January 2020, and March 2020 rounds of TechCred may now substitute employees listed in their original application.
  • Employers awarded in October 2019 and January 2020, who had credential programs interrupted by the crisis, may request to extend their 18-month award eligibility timeline.
  • Employees can now earn multiple credentials during each application period.
