TechCred Round Four | Apply Now!

Round four of Ohio's TechCred Program is open now - deadline to apply June 30!

Clark State is ready to assist with applications for the fourth round of TechCred funding. Clark State has identified more than 60 online programs eligible for the TechCred program, as well as, available hands-on instruction and training in manufacturing and information technology, implemented following physical distancing and all safety protocols as indicated by the state.

New for this round of funding, employers can apply for TechCred funding for specific credentials, without specifying employee name on the initial application. This allows companies to apply and receive funding that can be used for new hires and their future pipeline. With this change, companies can confidently hire individuals who may have been displaced due to COVID-19 and know that they can get the credentialing and training they need in a convenient, timely and affordable fashion.

Onsite CNC Technical Operator Training
Best Practice Highlight

Clark State Workforce and Business Solutions can create fast, flexible solutions for your training needs. One example of this is our CNC Technical Operator Training, which is also an eligible TechCred credential.

A local manufacturing partner had a need for onsite training as they hired and expanded quickly for a new project. They needed true subject matter experts who could help these new hires become proficient quickly, while staying on the production line. The Clark State team worked to create and deploy an onsite curriculum to quickly meet the need. Below is a testimonial directly from the companies HR department -

"I wanted to say thank you for partnering to establish a first of its kind on-site Machine Operator Training Program - delivered by Clark State. I think you can tell by the smiles in pictures below that it was a success. We are really satisfied with the outcome and will look forward to opportunities of continued partnership.

To the instructors -
The class really enjoyed your 'Chilman' attitude &  benefited from Tim's expert CNC knowledge. Thank you for keeping them engaged and making the training exciting!"
