On-the-Job Training Program

There are two On-the-Job Training Programs: New Hire and Performance-Based Training. Funded by the U.S. Department of Labor, the OJT Program gives individuals an opportunity to learn job skills and allow employers to train new employees while saving money and training costs.

The New Hire OJT Program allows an employer to receive up to 50 percent reimbursement of hourly wages paid to a trainee. The reimbursement serves as an incentive to encourage employers to hire individuals who do not have all the required skills for a particular job.

The Performance-Based OJT agreements are designed to offer training for a large number of employees for a short period of training time. This includes skilled and/or unskilled workers when time is of the essence.
