On-The-Job Training Program

The purpose of the On-The-Job Training (OJT) Program is to address the under-representation of and to promote the advancement of women, minorities, and disadvantaged persons in the highway construction trades.

The OJT Training Manual outlines the various classifications of training that contractors may select to meet the Training Special Provisions when made part of the contract. While demonstrating every Good Faith Effort (GFE) to fulfill OJT requirements is mandatory, the quality of training rests with each participating contractor. Many participating contractors have discovered new opportunities and hired quality employees through the OJT Program.
