On-the-Job Training - Businesses interested in hiring a trainee who needs a skills upgrade may be eligible for Workforce Investment Act funding in the form of On-the-Job Training (OJT). OJT programs can last between 4 weeks to 6 months. Eligible employers may receive up to 50% reimbursement of wages for this time.
For more information, please see our brochure.
Customized Training - Customized Training is a flexible, dynamic, and responsive program that allows local employers to work with the public workforce development system in meeting their short- and long-term labor needs. It puts the employer (or a group of employers with similar workforce needs) in the driver’s seat, allowing for the creation of a customized training curriculum that addresses a business’ specific occupational and soft skills requirements. Customized Training offers employers recruiting assistance and offsets recruiting and training costs for the company. The employer match for the cost of training will range from 10% to 50% of the cost of the training based on the size of the company.
