Ohio Manufacturing Workforce Partnership Employer $500 Training Incentive Program

Earn $500 Per Employee for Your Qualifying In-House Training Program

Manufacturers providing earn-and-learn opportunities to their employees are now eligible for $500 per person to offset the cost of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction. The Ohio Manufacturing Workforce Partnership (OMWP) is now offering incentives for employers who are willing to formalize their earn-and-learn programs and provide participant data through the Scaling Apprenticeship initiative. This incentive can be combined with programs like TechCred to offset the cost of tuition, credentials, assessments, and other training-related expenses. This is a first-come, first-serve program for qualifying manufacturer programs, so be sure to complete the application today.

The Ohio Manufacturing Workforce Partnership (OMWP): OMWP is a collaboration between Ohio TechNet, a consortium of 40+ educational institutions, and The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association (OMA), which facilitates a network of manufacturer-led sector partnerships. OMWP’s earn-and-learn programs are supported by the U.S. Department of Labor Scaling Apprenticeship Through Sector-Based Strategies initiative, which provided a $12 million grant.


Before beginning this application, please be prepared to supply information directly related to the apprenticeship/earn-and-learn program, including PDF documents of the related instruction description and the On-the-Job Training checklist or description.
