  • Intend to retain the trainee, if the trainee is meeting the minimum performance standards required for the position
  • Complete the agreement and position information prior to hiring the individual
  • Provide pay, time records, and participant updates to receive reimbursement

That’s it!

The OJT Program will pay up to 50% of the individual’s hourly salary for a standard OJT period, to be determined by the coordinator based on salary and standard time for OJT for the position.
