Upskill your workforce with TechCred

Ohio TechCred
Launched by Lt. Gov. Jon Husted and the Office of Workforce Transformation, the TechCred program aims to enhance Ohio’s skilled workforce by reimbursing employers who help their employees earn industry-recognized, technology-focused credentials. Boosting Ohio’s technology talent pool is an important goal of the program.

Key Details:

  • Businesses will identify the specific, technology-centric qualifications they need, as well as the employee(s) they want to upskill.

  • Credentials take a year or less to complete, and they prepare current and future employees for the technology jobs Ohio employers need.

  • The state will reimburse up to $2,000 per credential upon completion. (Limited to one reimbursement per employee in each funding round.)

  • Employers must partner with Ready Set Agile, an approved Scrum training provider, and apply online to qualify for reimbursement. Individuals listed in an employer’s application must be Ohio residents with a verifiable address.

  • According to program guidelines, employers may receive up to $30,000 per funding round. Businesses of all sizes are eligible.
