MDES On the Job Training

On-the-Job Training (OJT) is a program that assists employers in training new employees. The employee cannot have any prior experience in the job for which training is developed. Employers utilizing OJT may be reimbursed up to 50 percent (50%) of the wage rate of the new employee to cover the cost of training and supervision. The maximum time that an employer can be reimbursed is based on the skill level of the job and the content of the training. To participate an employer must:

  • Offer a full time job
  • Have an IRS identification number
  • Have worker's compensation insurance
  • Maintain an adequate system of record keeping

If you are interested in applying for On-the-Job Training, please contact the nearest WIN Job Center for application details. If you have questions, you may contact the nearest WIN Job Center or e-mail us at
