Earn $400 Per Employee for Your Qualifying In-House Training Program

The Ohio Workforce Partnership (OMWP) – a collaboration of Ohio TechNet and The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association -- recognizes that company-led, on-the-job learning is often as high-quality and rigorous as traditional apprenticeships. Now there is a way to be compensated for your investment in in-house earn-and-learn programs.

Through funds provided to OMWP by the U.S. Department of Labor Scaling Apprenticeship grant, manufacturers can now earn $400 per trainee. This opportunity is first-come, first-serve, and can fund up to 1,930 individuals. And, this incentive can be combined with programs like TechCred to offset the cost of tuition, credentials, assessments, and other training-related expenses.

To apply for funding, employers are asked to complete an online application that requests detailed information about:

·  Their company;

·  Their earn-and-learn program(s);

·  The number of apprentices/earn-and-learn trainees in the program(s); and

·  How the program(s) meets the federal ‘five-hallmark’ definition of earn-and-learn/apprenticeship.

Click here to review the five hallmarks of earn-and-learn under the USDOL grant.
