On-the-Job Training Program


So you’re ready to hire. Or maybe you’re thinking about hiring. We understand the process to bring on a new worker can be expensive and time consuming. But with the On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program, the costs of training a new, permanent employee with skills to meet your business needs could be offset.

What is the OJT Program?

The OJT Program is designed specifically to help dislocated (laid-off) workers experiencing prolonged unemployment transition back into the workforce. For businesses, it’s an affordable way to train and invest in new workers to help expand their business.

How Does It Work?

We’ll work with your company to identify OJT-qualified candidate with specialized skills to meet your company’s needs. You decide who to hire. Next, we’ll work with you to design a customized training program for the new employee. The process is complete when you sign the OJT agreement paperwork – which takes just minutes. We’ll provide you with a cash reimbursement (not a tax credit) to help recoup the costs associated with skill upgrade training and loss of production for newly hired employees.

Why It Can Work For Your Business 

OJT is your opportunity to hire experienced workers at a reduced cost to your company. Here are some reasons why you should consider OJT for your hiring needs:

  • OJT can minimize the cost of training
    We’ll compensate your business for the costs associated with training (up to 320 hours) and loss of production for newly hired employees. Our participating employers save an average of $3,700 in training costs.
  • OJT can streamline your hiring process
    Hiring just got easier. Tell us your workforce needs and we’ll recruit and pre-screen OJT-eligible, experienced candidates at no cost. The hiring decision is yours.
  • OJT requires minimal paperwork, resulting in more productivity
    The OJT agreement and enrollment process is fast and simple. With minimal paperwork, you and your new employee will be back to business in no time.
  • OJT offers continuous support
    We’ll stick by your side through every phase of the program and provide any assistance you need.
