The Lower Shore Work Force Alliance has a number of training reimbursement programs designed especially for employers. These programs help with the cost to train new employees, upskill current employees and retrain employees to prevent layoffs.
On-the-Job Training (OJT) – Wage Reimbursement
On-the-Job Training (OJT) is training conducted by an employer that is provided to a paid participant while engaged in productive work in a job that provides knowledge and skills essential to the full and adequate performance of the job.
Customized Training – Training Cost Reimbursement
Customized Training is designed to meet employers’ specific requirements. The training is provided by an employer (or by a training or educational institution on behalf of an employer) and is conducted with a commitment by the employer to employ an individual upon successful training completion. The skills learned are intended to be transferable across the industry. The employer pays a significant portion of the training cost.
Incumbent Worker – Training Cost Reimbursement
Incumbent Worker Training is training for an employer’s existing employee(s), carried out in conjunction with employers or groups of employers for assisting such workers in obtaining the skills necessary to retain employment or avert layoffs.
