Training the Workforce

On-the-Job Training (OJT)
OJT offers businesses a way to training new hires who lack job-specific skills that can be learned through short-term hands-on training. As an incentive, businesses may be reimbursed for up to 50% of wages during the training period. OJTs can also be used to offset some costs of registered apprenticeships. 

Customized Training

Businesses have specific training needs that may not be met through traditional training methods. Customized training allows businesses to help design and implement training that meets their individual needs.

Registered Apprenticeship
Many occupations across several industries can be trained using registered apprenticeship. Apprenticeships involve a hands-on training component and a classroom learning component. Timeframes for training and other details vary according to the trade.
