On-the-Job Training

Learn more about employer services

On-the-Job Training (OJT) is a program where employers can get reimbursed up to 75% of a person’s wages for up to 6months. During this time, a new employee will be receiving hands on training through you, the employer, on the skills that they are not proficient in.
This is a great way to train individuals that may have the education but lack the experience, or to work with someone who has lots of work experience but is looking to change careers.

Our On-the-Job Training (OJT) program allows businesses to offset some costs associated with training new hires.

  • Training costs are reimbursed for an amount up to 75% of the wage for your new hire. Maximum reimbursement per employee is $10,000.
  • Administration of the OJT takes a minimal amount of company time.
  • Training is implemented by you and your incumbent staff, the true job experts.
  • We can refer eligible candidates to you, or you can identify them yourself and forward their information to the Business Services Team to determine your eligibility.
  • Full time (30 or more hours per week) positions that provide direct new hires with permanent employment (as opposed to seasonal or temporary) are potentially eligible.
  • Applications must be approved in advance of the new hire’s first day of employment. Contact the Business Services Team at least 5 business days before the start date.
