What is the OJT Program?
The OJT Program offers equal opportunity for women and minorities in
highway construction. We assign training hours to larger projects as a
contract requirement. You, the contractor, hire or promote a women or
minority male to be an OJT. We want to help you diversify your
workforce, provide meaningful training, and fill your contract
Working Together to Make it Happen:
The OJT Program Manager is available to answer your questions and
discuss the training program before the project starts and for the
duration of the project.
Recruitment & Job Placement:
We will work closely with you to help recruit, assess, and place
qualified employees in the training program.
Many trainees are new to the construction industry and don't have
appropriate clothing to work on the job site. Each trainee will receive
a voucher to purchase necessary clothing and steel-toed boots. Other
supportive services include ongoing case management, purchasing of tools
if necessary, and funding of additional training opportunities, if they
become available and are of interest to the trainee.

Asked Questions and our
On-The-Job Training Program Flyer.
