Financial Incentives and Reduced Costs
In an industry where training and skill development are paramount, cost can often be a barrier. However, through our partnership, we can offer this training at a significantly reduced cost. Originally priced, this training becomes an even more attractive proposition when you consider the additional financial support available through the Ohio Manufacturers’ Association's employer incentive funding. Now you can receive a reimbursement of $750 per employee, making the cost of this comprehensive training only $375. It's an investment in quality training at an unprecedented value.

Training Overview: Elevating OJT

These assignments are crafted to be both practical and reflective, enabling learners to demonstrate their understanding and application of OJT concepts and best practices. Furthermore, the training includes weekly synchronous meetings with peers, fostering a community of learning and collaboration. 

Participants receive one-on-one mentoring, ensuring that feedback is tailored and constructive.
