On-the-Job Training (OJT)

Employers in Alachua and Bradford Counties – get reimbursed up to 50% of wages toward the cost of training your new hires!! How?

Tell us about your business, the type of candidates you’re looking for, and the positions you offer. We’ll help you fill your positions and reimburse you for the costs associated with training new employees for a set period of time.

You, as the employer, can ask CareerSource NCFL to identify and refer candidates who meet the eligibility requirements (candidates must also be eligible for and enrolled in an OJT program). Or, if you have already identified a candidate to interview or hire, you can refer them to our office for screening to determine if they are eligible.
