On the Job Training

You Hire. You Train. We Pay.

CareerSource Pinellas’ On-the-Job Training program helps businesses save money while training promising new hires!

Training program benefits include:

  • 50% of wages paid over a training period
  • Employer makes all the hiring decisions
  • Recruitment & job posting services
  • Assistance with candidate pre-screening
  • CareerSource Pinellas staff completes all the paperwork

It’s easy…your business just needs to:

  • Agree to provide on the job training for a full time salary or hourly position in one of the positions listed on the 2017-2018 Region 14 Targeted Occupations List
  • Intend to retain the trainee, if the trainee is meeting the minimum performance standards required for the position
  • Complete the agreement and position information prior to hiring the individual
  • Provide pay, time records, and participant updates to receive reimbursement

That’s it!
The OJT Program will pay up to 50% of the individual’s hourly salary for a standard OJT period, to be determined by the coordinator based on salary and standard time for OJT for the position.
