On the job training or OJT is one method by which students is given a

chance to apply the theories and computations that they have learned from the

school. It also helps the students to acquire relevant knowledge and skills by

performing in actual work setting. Colleges and universities require their students

to undergo such training within a specific number of hours as part of the


For the students, an OJT or internship program provides opportunities to

go through the actual methodologies of a specific job using the real tools,

equipments and documents. In effect, the workplace becomes a development

venue for a student trainee to learn more about his chosen field and practice

what he has learn from academy.

On the other hand, an effective OJT program also benefits the companies

who accept trainees. First OJT or intern provides additional manpower for a

lesser labor cost than a regular employee. Most of them are all eager to learn the

ropes so chances are high that they will cooperate.

Employers can use this internship strategy as a method in recruiting new

employees. Since the trainer or the supervisor can follow the trainees progress,

he can gauge based on performance, behavior and attitude if the trainee will

make a good recruit after the completion of his internship.

OJTs can bring fresh ideas into the organization. Given the opportunity to

speak their minds freely and without fear, they maybe able to contribute

significantly in brainstorming sessions or research and eventually help improve

the organizations productivity. While training the interns, employers are in fact

also teaching their employees to process of guiding the trainees stretches their

patience, develops teaching skills and makes them more sensitive to the needs

and mind set of the younger generation. The course of supervision also teaches

them how to share what they know and be receptive to questions. Hence, the

internship also becomes an avenue in training for future managers of the


Accommodating on-the-job trainees can truly be beneficial not only to the

trainees but also to the companies that provide opportunities for this type of

learning. There is wisdom in the front lines. Such training can be an investment

that will be valuable to the company later on. This is also why trainees should

take their internship seriously as it can become a powerful tool and possibly even

a source of recommendation when they take that big lift from being students to

career professionals.


Narrative Experience

May 10 13 , 2017
This is my first week in Specmaster - Inc. as a student trainee I was frist to office
work assisting and doing specific task given by my supervisor. It usually all about
paper works regarding electrical plan layout and estimation this week is not must
tiresome and very enjoyable.

May 15 20 , 2017

On the second week my supervisor assign me to field works ( site ) I'm assisting
the two electrician in doing their works and its very different to office works cause
you to do the measuring and layouting physically but it's worth it cause I've learn
a lot of things.

May 22 27 , 2017

This is my third day of my ojt. I was assign in the renovation site near to Sta.
Lucia mall cainta. I was designated as electrician helper assisting the electrician
is my duly task. on this week we focus on layouting a conduit using IMC pipe
which is hard for a beginner cause you need a bending tool for curvature layout.

May 29 June 3 2017

On this week the priority of work is on electrical wiring from floor by floor upto the
laundry cage so it usually takes a time or day to finish the overall wiring. I do
Inspectioning to the layout or wiring if there is some failure or ghe end of
the week I learn various techniques in electrical wiring installation

June 5 10 , 2017

Here in this week we do Feeder line cable pulling and wiring and completing the
unfinished minimal work.

June 12 17 , 2017

The work is almost done so were now installing some fixture and devices to the
laundry cage.with some minimal works
June 19 24 , 2017

I was assign back to the office for the completion of my total hours of work and
they teach me some knowledge in electrical design, autocad operation and
estimation of the cost that can amplify my skills and knowledge for the near
future. Overall this week is the end of my Ojt training hours.


The company created a good service to their clients and gave the best

training for the students. The students must have a good company that would

give them a good training ground and would enhance their knowledge and

capabilities. The school must have the good coordination for some companies

that offer an annual On the Job Training inside their company. The school should

provide more budgets given to the OJT coordinators to have the best monitoring

of the training the students are taking. One of the best ways of training is the

provincial trainings that would give different experiences to the trainees. An out of

town training would give more self esteem to the students. The electrical

engineering students have their training every 4th year and second semester of

the year. It is more efficient if they will take it 5th year of their last semester. In

some cases having their training during their 4th year of school would sometimes

affect the rhythm of their schooling because in mechanical engineering the

students OJT have their preferred pre-requisite subjects that once not taken

would give a big effect to the arrangement of the students subjects. Instead of

the regular schedule of years of studying, once being affected by the pre-

requisite subjects, the students would waste some of the time spending for the
subjects affected by the OJT. For the company, they should give more lectures

on the technical parts of the company like Auto Cad and Mechanical Devices

used by the Department.
