Key Features and Benefits to Employers:

  • Reimbursement of a percentage of the trainee wages earned during the training period
  • Minimal paperwork; easy process
  • Not limited to specific job types
  • Increased productivity
  • High worker retention rates
  • Training tailored to employer/employee needs

OJT Requirements
