On-The-Job Training

The On-The-Job Training (OJT) program provides companies with financial reimbursement for the cost of training and supervising employees who, upon hire, have outdated or incomplete skill sets. Reimbursement pays for 75 percent of an employee's wages up to six months of work. The program is intended to give dislocated workers the updated skills they need to return to the workforce and to give employers the skilled employees they need to sustain and grow their business.
 

Customized Training

 This program provides funds to upgrade the skills of existing staff.  We can help establish a customized workforce training program specific to your business and workforce needs. This program is designed to assist employers with retaining talent and improving the overall skill level of their workforce, so they remain relevant and competitive in the modern economy.
