- High School CTE
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 manufacturing talent pool is an important goal of the program.
The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association strongly supports the provision in Ohio’s new two-year budget that appropriated $30 million to support this credentialing program. The state intends to fund 20,000 credentials over the next two years.
