Employee Training Programs

On-the-Job Training (OJT): Your business is reimbursed for the cost of training a new employee—up to 50% of the new employee’s wage for the length of the contract (typically 2-4 months). You do the training and the employee does the learning. Your new hire learns skills unique to your business and industry.

Incumbent Worker Training: Funding assistance to qualifying Minnesota employers to provide skills training to current full-time permanent employees. The training should improve the skills of the employer’s workforce, increase its competitiveness, while also providing job security for its workers (layoff aversion).
