What is On-The-Job Training (OJT)?

On-the-job training (OJT) is a type of training that occurs in the workplace while the employee is performing their actual job duties. It is a way for employees to learn the skills needed to perform their job while they are working and earning a salary. OJT is an effective way for employees to learn the skills and knowledge required for a job because it allows them to apply what they learn in a real-life setting.

OJT can take many forms and can be formal or informal. Formal OJT is a structured training program that is planned and organized by the employer. It may include written materials, lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on training. Informal OJT is less structured and often takes the form of an experienced employee showing a new employee how to perform a task or answering questions as they arise.

OJT can be very beneficial for both employers and employees. For employers, OJT can be a cost-effective way to train employees and ensure that they have the skills needed to perform their job. For employees, OJT can provide an opportunity to learn new skills, get a sense of the work environment and culture, and gain valuable experience.

OJT can be provided as a part of Supported Employment program for individuals with disabilities, with the goal of teaching them the skills necessary to be successful in their job and help them become as independent as possible in their work setting. The support provided through OJT may include job coaching or mentoring, and on-the-job training, this will help the individual to learn the expectations of their employer and the job-related skills.

Who is On-The-Job Training (OJT) for?

On-the-job training (OJT) can be for employees of any level, from entry-level to management, who are new to a specific job or task and need to learn the necessary skills and knowledge to perform it. OJT is often used to train employees who are new to a company or have been promoted to a new position within the company. It can also be used to train employees on new equipment, processes, or procedures. It is also often used for providing skills training for employees with disabilities who are seeking employment or are already employed.

Employers benefit from OJT as well, as it can be a cost-effective way to train employees and ensure that they have the skills needed to perform their job, which can lead to improved job performance, retention, and overall productivity.

In a nutshell, On-the-job training is a flexible and effective way of providing training for employees of different levels, backgrounds, and needs, and it can be tailored to the specific needs of the employer and employee.
