We assist you through all phases of the OJT including:
- Bringing you applicants that have a wide variety of job skills and experience. Our qualified staff pre-interview applicants and thoroughly assess skill levels to carefully match applicants to your job requirements. You are not obligated to hire the candidate we refer to you.
- Assisting you in designing a training plan that meets your needs.
- Guiding you during the OJT process to ensure a successful outcome.
On-the-Job Training is a contractual agreement in which the employer must agree to:
- Pay trainees wages and provide benefits commensurate with other employees doing similar work and with similar experience. OJT trainees are your employees and are subject to your company's policies.
- Commit to continued employment upon successful completion of the training.
- Provide substantive on-the-job training. Training takes place at your location, on your equipment, under your guidelines. The length of training will be determined by the job description, and demonstrated participant skill gaps.
- Submit trainee evaluations and payroll records to the Career Center for wage reimbursement.
