Programs and Services for Employers

On-The-Job Training

The On-the-Job Training (OJT) program helps employers attract and retain employees who don’t possess the skills needed to perform in a specific position. OJT reimburses between 50 and 90 percent of the employee’s salary during the designated training period, based on size of organization.

Classroom or work-based learning may be provided through an educational provider of the employer’s choice.

Customized Training

Employers commit to employ individuals who successfully complete completion of the training and may be reimbursed for half the cost of training.

Apprenticeships combine classroom studies with extensive on-the-job training under the supervision of journey-level craftspersons or trade professionals. Apprenticeships are typically sponsored by, or in conjunction with, a trade union or industry association. But the model is also used in health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing and other industries.
