Ohio TechCred Program and AWS Training
Upskill your employees with Amazon Web Services (AWS) training and find out how your company can be reimbursed up to $30,000 for your employee’s training through Ohio’s TechCred program.
The Ohio TechCred Program opened Oct 1st 2020 and has been updated to be more flexible for employers. You can identify your training plan and which credentials/trainings will be needed, but you do not need to identify the employees (current and/or prospective employees) until the training is completed and you file for reimbursement.
We are happy to work with you on your training plan for open enrollment or private training courses, your application and provide the training certificates to apply for reimbursement. This program is not a first come, first served program. The acceptance of your application will be based upon need and a points system developed by the state and you will need to be submitted before Oct 30th 2020 for this round. Let’s get started on your application now!
