On-The-Job Training (OJT)

On-The-Job Training Program (OJT)

Annually, highway construction contractors must provide on-the-job training to anywhere from 25 to 40 minority, female, or economically disadvantaged individuals. Contractors are assigned trainees based on the total amount of federal-aid work they receive each season. The contractors may choose to train equipment operators, truck drivers, concrete finishers, structural carpenters, or other skilled craft workers. Training programs run from 350 to 550 hours.
