On the Job Training (OJT)
OJT provides reimbursement to employers to help compensate for the costs associated with upgraded skills training and loss of production for newly hired employees. OJT training can assist employers who are looking to expand their businesses and who need additional staff trained with job specific skills.
OJT employers may receive 50% wage reimbursements up to $3,500 during the training period (up to 6 months) of OJT trainees to help defray personnel training costs.
The Job Training Fund, the NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs team of Business Resource Specialists and the NH Manufacturing Extension Partnership can also provide assistance to train workers and create new opportunities for growth.
