What is On-the-Job Training?

The KANSASWORKS On-the-Job Training program (OJT) supports local businesses needing to train and retain skilled, productive workers.

Companies train promising candidates with the necessary skills for the position. For qualifying positions, OJT contracts can reimburse up to 50% of the wages to compensate employers for the cost associated with training and loss of production for a newly hired employee.

The OJT program also gives unemployed workers valuable skills and permanent, full-time employment. Job seekers earn while they learn and begin a path toward a new career.

On-the-Job Training Works

  • In 2018, we placed 245 job seekers in OJT opportunities
  • In 2018, the OJT starting wage has been over $11/hour

“On-the-job training gives someone enough time to learn any trade if they are willing to learn.” – Trainee
