On-the-Job Training (OJT)


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 skilled workers and get reimbursed for your efforts. As an employer, you’ll benefit from more efficient recruiting, more targeted training, and assistance with training expenses:

  • Employment specialists help you find the right talent when you need it, reducing time, effort, and money spent on recruiting.  Candidates are screened, assessed and referred for consideration or employers can reverse refer for consideration.
  • 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.
