Ohio’s TechCred Program gives employers the chance to upskill current and future employees in today’s tech-infused economy. Employers who submit successful applications will be reimbursed up to $2,000 per credential when current or prospective employees complete eligible technology-focused credentials.

Developed by the Ohio Department of Development, TechCred helps Ohioans learn new skills and helps employers build a stronger workforce with the skills needed in a technology-infused economy. These technology-focused credentials take a year or less to complete and prepare current and future employees for the technology jobs Ohio employers need.

What TechCred Ohio Students Say

I found this class very informative, and the instructor’s ability to relate to the class and teach and not just lecture is invaluable.

I would recommend Innovation Garage to anyone that is looking to expand their learning.

Product Design Engineer
Global Motor Manufacturer

The training generated a lot of enthusiasm around new product development in a wide group of people. Several new product ideas and product improvements were generated that will be further developed. This should lead to a few new products in the development pipeline.

Design Research Director
Biotechnology Company

I’ve seen a lot of the content throughout my career but in something akin to seeds scattered across a field. It was great to see it as a cohesive whole, i.e., nice to see the forest along with the trees.
