COLUMBUS – State Representative Roy Klopfenstein (R-Haviland) visited the Vantage Career Center in Van Wert. The representative met with Center leadership, business leaders, instructors, and coordinators to learn more about the benefits of TechCred courses and how they help the local community. 

“With the demands of our workforce rapidly changing, it is important that we continue to support the instructors and students enrolled in TechCred,” said Klopfenstein. “By investing in more tech-focused training, we are able to help Ohioans better position themselves for the future.”

“I appreciate Rep. Klopfenstein taking the time to visit Vantage Career Center. The adult education programs they offer increase the number of qualified firefighters, EMTs, and nurses protecting our community,” Van Wert Fire Chief Jon Jones said. “Additionally, the TechCred programs available at Vantage will keep Ohioans amongst the most skilled workers in the country.”

The state operating budget, which was passed in late June, invests over $50 million in funding for TechCred, which helps Ohioans learn new skills and helps employers build a stronger workforce with the skills needed in a technology-infused economy.
