Hire new employees and train them while being reimbursed
On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program
The On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program assists employers with the cost of hiring and training a new employee. It is funded through the Federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and administered through the Morris-Sussex-Warren One-Stop Career Centers (Employment & Training) in New Jersey.
The OJT Program enables employers to hire new employees and train them at their place of business while being reimbursed a percentage of the new employee’s wages during training.
The OJT Program is a wise, cost-effective way to staff positions with job-ready, pre-screened applicants.
OJT is available to private companies and non-profit organizations. OJT is subject to employer eligibility and available funding.
