The On-The-Job (OJT) Program operates on the premise that employers make the best trainers. The OJT Program helps the employer defray some costs associated with the hiring and training of new workers, while providing the trainee with the most practical learning experience.
OJT offers a wage subsidy to defray the cost of training for a designated period of time while an employer trains a worker. The employer can be sure that workers are trained on company equipment, to company standards. This results in better:
Performance, loyalty, and satisfaction
The employer will be reimbursed 50% of the participant’s wages while in training.
The employer decides who will be hired, retains all employer rights, and has the benefit of trainee counseling assistance provided by the Employment and Training staff.
Length of Training
The length of training time allowed will depend on the skill level of the job, the needs of the employer, and the needs of the trainee. An Employment and Training Specialist will help the employer outline a training plan based on the company’s written job description.
Any company may apply for the OJT Program if it can provide the following:
A pay rate meeting federal, state or union standards, as applicable
Training in a position of sufficient complexity to require a training period for eligible trainees
Working hours equal to the standard work week of the company
