ON THE JOB TRAINING


On the job training (OJT) is a training method

that is planned, organized, and conducted at the employee's worksite. It offers participants who already have job related skills to learn as they earn. OJT is the primary method used for broadening employee skills and increasing productivity. It is particularly appropriate for developing proficiency skills unique to an employee's job especially jobs that are relatively easy to learn and require locally-owned equipment and facilities.
