Training Special Provisions / On-the-Job Training (OJT)
Some projects contain a Training Special Provision, or On-the-Job Training (OJT) requirement. The OJT program establishes apprenticeship and training programs targeted to move women, minorities, and disadvantaged individuals into journey-level positions to ensure that a competent workforce is available to meet highway construction hiring needs. It also addresses the historical under-representation of these groups in highway construction skilled crafts.
Projects with OJT requirements are outlined in the bid and contract documents. For each trainee, the contractor must fill out an EEO 7A Monthly Training Report, including months with zero hours.
