A vibrant diverse marketplace requires a healthy, diverse workforce.
The Institute undertakes workforce projects that demonstrate ways to overcome barriers to diversity and build the next generation of diverse workers and leaders.
Currently, the Institute provides leadership and supportive services for the NCDOT OJT (on the job training-a workforce development) Civil Industry Program from Orange County to Haywood County, which are all the counties west of Durham.
On-The-Job training, also known as OJT, is teaching the skills, knowledge, and competencies that are needed to perform a specific job within the workplace and work environment. On-the-job training is a one-on-one training located at the job site and uses the regular or existing workplace tools, machines, documents, equipment, knowledge and skills necessary for an employee to learn to effectively perform his or her job.
Contact the Institute for more information and to get involved.
On-The-Job training is part of and funded through the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The United States Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) requires all state highway agencies to establish and utilize On-the-Job Training on federally-funded highway construction projects. Title 23 CFR is the regulations to implement and carry out the provisions of Federal law relating to the administration of Federal aid for highways that includes on-the-job-training within North Carolina Department of Transportation.
