On-the-Job Training

Get Reimbursed for Training

On-the-Job training is a great way to make a difference for your business, because it helps reduce your training costs, while providing your new employee with the necessary skill sets that you require for the job. If your business is planning to hire, it can take advantage of this federal program that reimburses employers for training new employees, or existing employees who are moving to a different position within your business, but will need additional in-house training to do the job. 

Is Your Business Eligible to Participate?

  1. Is your business a legal entity?
  2. Is your business registered with a state sales tax certificate, a state unemployment tax identification number, and federal tax identification number?
  3. Is your business compliant with worker’s insurance requirements?
  4. Is your business barred from entering into contracts that are funded with federal or state funds?

If you answered YES to questions 1 – 3, and NO to question 4, your business meets the initial eligibility requirements. If not, please contact the workforce center to learn more on how to meet the requirements.

 

Government organizations are also eligible to participate in the OJT program when the job position is not funded by federal dollars.
