Next Round of TechCred Opens on Friday

The eleventh application period for TechCred will open this week on Friday, October 1, 2021 and closes on October 29, 2021.

TechCred helps businesses address their workforce needs by upskilling current and prospective employees. Employers simply need to identify the specific skills they need, the number of employees they want to upskill, and which training provider they want to use. Businesses of all sizes, from any industry, can apply online at and the state will reimburse up to $2,000 for each training upon completion of a credential.

Since the program launched in October 2019, a total of 1,419 Ohio employers have been approved for TechCred, which will fund up to 26,872 tech-focused credentials to upskill Ohio workers. The results of the tenth round, which closed on August 30, will be announced in the coming weeks.

The state budget allocated funding for an additional 20,000 credentials through the program in each of the next two fiscal years to help Ohio businesses keep up with the demands of new technologies.
