On The Job Training

Do you need skilled workers? On-the-Job Training (OJT), a federal program funded by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), lets you hire and train workers while getting reimbursed for your efforts.

As an employer, you’ll benefit from efficient, targeted training, and assistance to offset the training expenses:

  • We can help you find the right talent when you need it, reducing time, effort, and money spent on recruiting.

  • The specific technical skills you need may be hard to find. OJT helps you train the right workers to meet your requirements.

  • You receive up to 50% of the costs to provide on-the-job training for individuals you hire through the public workforce system.

Getting started with OJT

Because OJT offers a comprehensive training solution, you must meet certain criteria to participate. Steps in the process:

  • Find out if you meet OJT employer criteria. Staff at your local Business & Career Solutions Center will help you determine your eligibility.

  • Before proceeding, you’ll sign a contract covering terms of the agreement, including positions to be trained, wages, and reimbursement rates.

Need help with OJT or other workforce issues? Contact your local Business & Career Solutions Center to connect with a Business Services Team Member.
