On-the-Job Training (OJT)

CareerSource Broward's On-the-Job Training (OJT) program provides a unique opportunity for individuals who already possess some job-related skills and knowledge to "earn as they learn." By participating, employers benefit by being reimbursed up to 75% for the new hire's wages during the training period, while having the services of a full-time employee.

  • Employers are reimbursed up to 75% of the wage rate of the individual for the costs associated with providing the training and increased supervision related to the training.
  • OJT provides knowledge or skills essential to the full and adequate performance of the job.
  • OJT focuses on jobs involving the introduction of new technologies, production or service procedures; upgrading to new jobs that require additional skills or workplace literacy; among other purposes.
  • The employer can be in the public, private non-profit or private sector.
  • OJT is limited in duration based upon the target occupation for which the participant is being trained, the participant’s prior work experience and the service strategy.
  • Any paperwork is handled by CareerSource Broward staff!
