On-the-Job Training

On-the-Job Training (OJT) is a federally funded program that helps employers hire and train workers for full-time, long term employment. Through OJT, employers may be reimbursed up to $8,000.00. This funding compensates you for training new workers in skills they need to help your business thrive.

The goal with OJT is to place participants into in-demand occupations that will enhance their marketability for long-term employment with you, while meeting your needs as the employer. OJT involves the acquisition of specific skills, through exposure in an actual work setting, to the processes, work tasks, tools, and methods of a specific job or group of jobs.

Incumbent Worker Training

Incumbent Worker training provides both workers and employers with the opportunity to build and maintain a quality workforce. Workers participating in IWT will benefit by enhancing existing skills, learning new skills, and earning employer or industry recognized credentials, in addition to retaining employment, maintaining their careers, and/or increasing their earnings potential. To avert the risk of closing, IWT may be developed with a business or business association to maintain their competitive status, incorporate new technology, or prevent downsizing.

IWT is restricted to skill attainment activities. The training should benefit workers by making them more qualified in their line of business and/or by providing them with skills for new products or processes. It is desired that the training results in credentials or industry recognizable skills that promote the worker's career and increases the overall employability.
