Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) OJT

Drastically Reduce New Employee Training Costs.

The cost of training a new employee can amount to many thousands of dollars due to lost productivity and supervisory time alone. On-the-job training (OJT) has been proven to be one of the most successful means of training new employees in the skills and performance levels required.

PA CareerLink® Lehigh Valley’s On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program can help in defraying those expensive costs. For new, full-time, eligible employees, your company may be reimbursed 50-90% of their wages during an initial training period.
