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.
Incumbent Worker Training
Sometimes an existing workforce needs an upgrade. Or an employee needs new training or a certification. We can provide reimbursement for training materials and supplies, tuition and registration—even instructors’ wages. Incumbent Worker Training may be offered to employers who, after an assessment, are determined to need training for existing employees in order to remain competitive or avert a potential layoff. Classroom or work-based learning may be provided through an educational provider of the employer’s choice.
The Customized Training program is designed to meet the special requirements of an employer or a group of employers by allowing them to tailor and design work-based skills training. Employers commit to employ individuals who successfully complete completion of the training and may be reimbursed for half the cost of training.
