Partners and Programs


The state of Ohio has funding available for employers looking to upskill their workforce. TechCred helps Ohioans learn new skills and helps employers build a stronger workforce with the skills needed in a technology-infused economy. Many of these trainings can be completed online, and the credentials that prepare current and future employees for the technology jobs Ohio employers need take less than a year. Manufacturers interested in this funding can apply online.
