COLUMBUS—State Senator Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) announced that the 13th application period for TechCred will open beginning today, March 1st and run through March 31st.

"The business landscape of Ohio, our nation, and the world is constantly changing," Reineke said. "The need to hire and train unique technical skillsets is more important than ever. I highly encourage all Ohio employers to apply for the TechCred program to take advantage of this 

Since the program launched in October 2019, a total of 1,615 Ohio employers have been approved for TechCred, which will fund up to 32,269 tech-focused credentials to upskill Ohio workers. The results of the 12th round, which closed on January 31st, will be announced in the coming weeks.

TechCred helps businesses address their workforce needs by upskilling current and prospective employees. Businesses of all sizes, from any industry, are eligible for up to $30,000 per round and up to $180,000 per year. To allow businesses more time to plan their employee trainings in advance, the TechCred application will officially open on a bimonthly basis for the remainder of 2022.
