On-The-Job Training

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.

Incumbent Worker Training

The purpose of the Incumbent Worker Training is to support training projects that will benefit employers and industry by assisting the skill development of existing employees that have been with their respective company for six months or more, increasing employee productivity and growth of the company, as well as assisting in keeping OhioMeansJobs – Allen County’s workforce competitive.  The training is expected to lead to the creation of new jobs, retention of jobs, increased wages for better-trained workers, a higher-skilled workforce, and a more profitable business climate.  Click here for more details regarding program information, application and agreement.
