On The Job Training

OhioMeansJobs - Knox County has an On-the-Job Training (OJT) program that provides individualized occupational skills training for WIOA eligible adult and dislocated workers.  It is a program in which the employer, either public or private, enters into an agreement with OhioMeansJobs Knox County to hire, train and retain the individual upon successful completion of the training program.

The goal is to place participants into in demand occupations that will enhance their prospects for long-term employment while meeting needs of the employer. OJT involves the acquisition of specific skills and employment competencies, through exposure in an actual work setting, to the processes, work tasks, tools and methods of a specific job or group of jobs.


The hiring decisions are yours. You can select your own candidate or we can do the recruiting for you.
Training is tailored to your business needs and is not limited to specific job types. We can help you set up a training plan that you organize and conduct at your workplace.
Participation is simple. You agree to hire, train and retain employees and we reimburse you up to 50% of their wages for up to 6 months.
