A new Ohio program supports companies who want to train current and future employees. Employers can take advantage of training at Ohio Technical Centers like the Adult Workforce Development program at Great Oaks Career Campuses; students earn technology or industry certifications and the employer is reimbursed by the TechCred Ohio fund.

“Employers are looking for workers who are prepared with the most up-to-date credentials,” said Gov. Mike DeWine. “TechCred will better link businesses with the talent they need and help workers with the skills they need to advance their careers.”
“Great Oaks can provide a wide range of certifications, from CompTIA and other technology credentials to electrocardiography to robotics,” said Adult Workforce Development Director Julie Woodward.

Woodward suggested that employers look into the program soon, as the first cutoff date for applying is October 31.
Ohio companies interested in investing in their current or prospective employees by connecting them with technology-focused credentials can apply.

Reimbursement of up to $2000 per credential is available for a wide range of IT and manufacturing technology certifications. For more information, go to https://techcred.ohio.gov or contact Kayla Ruberg at Great Oaks Career Campuses, 513.612.5809.
