    On the Job Training Program (OJT)

    For qualifying positions, OJT provides employers in Multnomah County a cost-effective way to develop talent. This training cost reimbursement program is administered by WorkSource Oregon. 

    Companies can use OJT to:

    • Train promising candidates, who don't have all the skills that a position requires, and fill positions requiring specific skills.
    • Offset the cost of training. WorkSource Oregon reimburses companies' training investment at 50% of wages paid to the new hire during the training period. The average reimbursement is $3,500, but specific reimbursement amounts vary.
