On The Job Training
On-the-Job Training (OJT) offers participants an opportunity to earn as they learn, while employers benefit from a partial wage reimbursement during the training period. OJT focuses on jobs that involve new technologies, production, service or additional skills for full-time positions (30 hours per week is considered full-time) paying at least $12.00 per hour or more. Advantages to the employer include:
- No cost access to a carefully screened pool of available talent
- You set the qualifications, interview, and select the individual
- Customized training your way, at your workplace
- Receive a 50% reimbursement of the new employee's wage, up to $21.00 per hour, while they are training (up to 400 hours and based upon the targeted occupation)
- The average employer reimbursement is $3,000
- Simple process with minimal paperwork
We partner with employers in various industries and locations throughout the 13-county region and offer a team of specialized recruiters to help match skill sets and positions. We invite employers from the private non-profit or private sectors with a current state issued tax ID and a recent history of taxable wages on at least three current employees to participate.

OJT is only available for new employees, and training information must be established prior to the start date, so don't delay and contact us before you hire!
