On-the-Job Training (OJT) / Apprenticeship
Getting Connected

Oregon will soon reach record levels of highway construction. Without an immediate effort to identify, recruit, and train a new, more diverse, and larger workforce, there simply won’t be enough workers to get the job done. To meet the need for construction workers, the Oregon Department of Transportation recently unveiled its Workforce Development Plan that is designed to:

  • Boost diversity in employment
  • Provide apprenticeship opportunities
  • Increase training resources
  • Offer opportunities for highway construction jobs
  • Create a resource of skilled workers for contractors
If you are interested in the construction field and want to be a part of the Workforce Development Plan, call our bilingual toll-free number (1-877-972-5700) to find out about employment or apprenticeship opportunities with ODOT's contractors on highway construction projects. 

If you are a contractor and want to know how to draw from this pool of skilled workers, contact the Regional Civil Rights Specialists in your area. Select to view their contact information.
