Ohio’s new TechCred program was launched last week. The program gives DRMA members (and other Ohio employers) the opportunity to upskill employees and get reimbursed from the State. Employees will get trained by local providers and must earn industry-recognized, technology-focused credentials.
Applications for the program MUST be submitted by October 31.
We held an information session on October 9, at which representatives from Clark State, Edison State, and Sinclair community colleges and the adult program at Miami Valley Career Center provided information on their programs that qualify for this program. Each school is prepared to help you navigate the application process.

Here are some things you should know:
Employers will identify the specific, technology-centric qualifications they need, as well as the employee(s) they want to upskill.
To qualify for reimbursement of training costs, the employer must partner with a training provider and apply online. Individuals listed in an employer’s application must be Ohio residents with a verifiable Ohio address.
The state will reimburse up to $2,000 of training costs per credential upon completion. There is a limit of one reimbursement available per employee in each funding round.
Employers are eligible to receive up to $30,000 per funding round
The application period began on 10/1 and ends 10/31.
