On-the-Job Training Program (OJT) is a federally funded program that helps employers hire and train workers for full-time, long term employment. Full-time employment is considered 32 hours per week. Through OJT programs, employers may be reimbursed up to 50 percent of the wages earned by eligible new trainees while they learn the job. This funding compensates you for training workers in skills they need to help your business thrive.
The goal is to place participants into in-demand occupations that will enhance their prospects for long-term employment while meeting needs of the employer. OJT involves the acquisition of specific skills and employment competencies, through exposure in an actual work setting, to the processes, work tasks, tools and methods of a specific job or group of jobs.
The Community Block Grant/Incumbent Worker Training Program (ITWP) objective is to support training projects that it will benefit local business and industry by assisting in the skill development of existing employees, resulting in increased employee productivity and growth/retention of the company and its workforce. The training must have common acceptance as a skill required for a particular industry.
