What is On-The-Job-Training (OJT)
An On-The-Job Training program is a Federal Highway Administration requirement for all states. The objective of the NDOT pilot OJT program is to address the underrepresentation of minority, female, veteran, and economically disadvantaged individuals in the highway construction trades through the establishment of OJT objectives in these projects. The primary objective of the NDOT pilot OJT program is the training and upgrading of minorities, women, veteran, and disadvantaged individuals through the completion of craft apprenticeship programs on a project to achieve journey-level status on NDOT Federal-Aid contracts.
NDOT, under Title VI of the civil rights act of 1964 and related statutes, ensures that no person shall on the grounds of race, religion (where the primary objective of the financial assistance is to provide employment per 42 u.s.c. *2000d-3), color, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation and disability be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any department programs or activities.
