Ohio TechCred

Lt. Governor Jon Husted announced the results of the April TechCred application period. Following eight rounds, over 23,700 credentials have been approved through TechCred, exceeding the DeWine-Husted Administration’s goal for the first two years of the program.

The most recent TechCred application period closed at the end of April. Today, 310 Ohio employers were approved for funding, resulting in Ohio employees earning up to 3,882 tech-focused credentials.

In addition, more small businesses took advantage of the program this round than ever before, with 124 small businesses requesting credentials.

With the approvals announced today, a total of 1,310 Ohio employers have been approved for funding, supporting the earning of 23,723 tech-focused credentials by Ohio employees. This round fulfills a commitment made by Governor Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor Husted to fund 10,000 credentials each year to help close the skills gap for growing technology jobs. This commitment was met within the first 19 months of the program.

The ninth TechCred application period opened on Tuesday, June 1st and closes June 30th at 3:00 p.m.
