RAMTEC was mentioned by Lt. Governor Husted in his talk about Ohio's Workforce Transformation budget proposal. He emphasized the importance of Industry Credentials for students coming out of high school and workers already in the workforce.
Lt. Gov. Jon Husted, who oversees the Office of Workforce Transformation, told The Lima News on Tuesday that the purpose of the initiative is to address the “skills mismatch” for employers who are unable to find qualified talent now that unemployment has fallen.
“We have a demographic issue over the next 10 years, we’re going to see more people leave the workforce than come into the workforce because more people are turning 65 than turning 18,” Husted said. He described the workforce initiative as “employer driven,” with in-demand skills identified by the state’s employers taking top priority."
