On-the-Job Training Progam
Created by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), the primary purpose of the On-the-Job-Training (OJT) Program is to offer equal opportunity for the training and upgrading of minorities, women and disadvantaged persons toward journey-level status in the highway construction trades. This effort will broaden the labor pool with skilled individuals. The OJT Program has been developed in accordance with 23 CFR 230, Appendix B to subpart A.
