Classroom and on-the-job training (OJT) opportunities enable eligible job seekers to acquire the skills required for today’s high-demand occupations.
Career Exploration and Skill Assessments

On-the-Job Training (OJT)
OJT is a great opportunity to “Earn While You Learn.” An employer may qualify to receive a wage reimbursement while training you to perform a new job. You earn the same hourly wage as other employees in the same position. The employer agrees to maintain you as an employee upon successful completion of the required training.
