On-the-Job Training

Program Overview

The purpose of the On-the-Job Training program is to provide On-the-Job training opportunities aimed at developing full journeyperson status for minorities, females, disadvantaged and disabled individuals in the highway construction industry, to enhance skills in individuals for a particular craft, and to maintain or exceed the proposed workforce representation goals for the contractor as established in the contract; thus meeting the primary objective of equal employment opportunity. This effort is in accordance with the contractor's affirmative action initiatives as described in the contract documents and to promote equal opportunity in the highway construction industry.

It is the policy of SHA to require full utilization of all available training and skill-improvement opportunities to assure the increased participation of minority groups and disadvantaged persons and females in all phases of the highway construction industry. The OJT Program is one vehicle for implementing this policy.
