Most newly hired people are trained on-the-job. The On-the-Job Training (OJT) program is funding to help offset the employer's cost of that training. The benefit to individuals is that they can be considered for more positions when they don't necessarily have all of the skills needed to be 100% productive on day one. Evidence also shows individuals that participate in the OJT program are more likely to retain their job longer and earn a higher wage.
On-the-Job Training is coordinated and funded by the Tri-Parish Works and the local Workforce Development Board.
