Businesses: Is the cost of training weighing your business down?

road-sign-798175_640

Use On-the-Job Training to help cover the costs! 

The CDO Workforce New York One-Stop System has On-the-Job Training (OJT) Funds available. 

The OJT funding provides companies with an incentive to hire and train individuals who lack the specific skills or experience for a job. 

OJT is appropriate for occupations where classroom training is not suitable and for which specific job skills can be learned by a worker while engaged in useful work. 

This program is for full-time (at least 32 hours per week) employment and cannot be used for seasonal, commission, or 1099 employment opportunities.

Business OJT users apply their own methods to teach workers the new skills necessary for successful employment within their company, while the trainee is performing productive tasks.

OJT contracts can be written up to $2,000 per trainee depending on amount of training provided.

For more information regarding grants and other CDO Workforce Business Services contact: Tylena Daniels at (607)-334-2201 X 128 / [email protected] OR April Feyh at 607-832-5782 / [email protected]
