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.
