August 24, 2022

Ohio Lt. Governor Jon Husted, Director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation (OWT), announced on August 9 that four training providers located throughout the state will receive a total of $592,215 in awards to support 410 broadband or 5G-related credentials through the Individual Microcredential Assistance Program (IMAP).

This is the third round of the initiative, which helps Ohioans who are low income, partially unemployed, or totally unemployed participate in a training program and receive one or more credential(s) for free.  The selected training providers, which include the Tri-County Career Center in Nelsonville, will be reimbursed up to $3,000 for each completed technology-focused credential issued.

A variety of credential pathways that align with telecommunications job opportunities will be available for individuals through IMAP including 5G and Broadband Deployment, Wireless Broadband Infrastructures, Certified Fiber Optic Installer, and more.  Training will be offered in-person and online, allowing Ohioans to take advantage of the program from anywhere in the state.
