Internet-Based Learning

We offer an extensive on-line catalog of classes for eligible job seekers and employees who want to improve their skills.

On The Job Training

The ‘On the Job Training’ (OJT) program provides workforce solutions for businesses by providing employers with a predetermined wage reimbursement for an employee in training.  Reimbursement of the trainee’s wage rate during the training period defrays training expenses and helps maintain productivity.
On the Job Trainings assist businesses in training and retaining skilled, productive workers.  OJTs may be used to help train newly hired employees or eligible current employees.

*Limitation and conditions apply.
