CareerCenter On-The-Job Training Program
This program reimburses an employer for up to 50% of an employee’s wages for up to twelve 40-hour weeks (480 hours), defraying the costs associated in training a new employee until the individual is performing at a higher capacity. This program is eligible for previously unemployed workers; employers should contact the CareerCenter prior to actually making the hire if they wish to participate in this program.  The CareerCenter can also prepare potential candidates with related classroom training prior to hire.  Read more about the CareerCenter.
