On-the-job Training

Employers benefit from our OJT program by being reimbursed for part of the participant’s wages during the training period, while having the services of a full-time employee.

On-the-Job Training (OJT) and Customized Training provide unique opportunities for participants who already possess some job-related skills and the knowledge to "learn as they earn". By participating in training as an employee, the participant not only acquires new skills and knowledge, but also receives the same wages and benefits as current employees in same or similar positions.



Our program helps cover many of the costs associated with Apprenticeships such as the certifications required for your open positions. This is an attractive way to develop a highly skilled and productive workforce. Here are some examples of how your business can benefit:

  • Employee skills are tailored to fit YOUR workplace

  • Recruitment and retention of a highly qualified workforce

  • A proven process for development of knowledge and skills imparted from experienced personnel to apprentices

  • Employees trained in new technologies can share information with other staff, giving you a competitive edge

  • Skills of a retiring workforce are retained through on-the-job mentoring

  • Greater workforce competency and productivity

  • Reduced turnover

Apprenticeship is a combination of on-the-job training and related classroom instruction in which workers learn the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation.

Layoff assistance

Training in Boise

The Layoff Assistance Program is a prelude to the Dislocated Worker Program. This Program provides transitional services that are designed to assist in the early stages of a layoff. These services are offered in recognition that Dislocated Workers have various levels of need. Some workers only require minimal assistance to successfully return to the workforce, while others may need more.


Activities under our Layoff Assistance program acknowledge the importance of early intervention and are designed to address the most commonly recognized needs of Dislocated Workers. The services provided through our program are designed to help make the period of unemployment as manageable as possible.

Layoff Assistance include:

  • How to Apply for Unemployment Insurance

  • New Training and Certifications

  • Job Search assistance

  • Interviewing Techniques/Applications

  • Resume Writing
