OJT? What's that?

OJT stands for On-The-Job Training. On-the-Job Training is a “hire-first” program. Eligible employers agree to hire, train, and retain the individual upon successful completion of the training program. Some quick facts about the program are:

  • Businesses may be reimbursed for up to 75% of the new employee’s wages and the extraordinary costs of the training
  • Workers have the opportunity to earn and learn
  • Hands on training in professional setting
  • Payment to employer to offset training costs
  • Opportunity to train employees your way
  • Investment and growth in your company

View our informational OJT Flyer.

The flyer is also available in Spanish.
