On-the-Job Training (OJT) / Apprenticeship
Training Programs
ODOT encourages highway construction contractors to become registered training agents with a BOLI approved Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee (JATC). Registered training agents may pay sub-prevailing wages to registered apprentices.
For those contractors not registered as training agents, ODOT offers the following in-house training programs for use on Federal-Aid projects only. These in-house training programs are not recognized on State-funded ODOT projects. Payment of sub-prevailing wages is not authorized for these training programs.
Companies adopting one of these programs must be able to provide all of the training included in the "Work Processes" section, including the classroom instruction. These programs are not designed for use as summer work programs for college students, nor are they designed to simply "fulfill the contractual requirement." Contractors adopting these programs and enrolling trainees are making a commitment to On-the-Job Training.
Companies interested in adopting an in-house training program should contact an ODOT Region Civil Rights Specialist. Once adopted, these programs may be used on any ODOT Federal-Aid Project when OJT/Apprenticeship is a contractual requirement.
