On-the-Job Training (OJT)
OJT is offered through the WIOA Program to enable businesses to reduce their costs for training new workers who meet WIOA eligibility. The business may be reimbursed up to 75% of the gross wages paid to each eligible worker during their first 4 weeks of employment (depending on qualifying circumstances). The worker must be pre-qualified by WIOA prior to the start of training and the proper OJT paperwork must be in place prior to the new hire beginning employment. For more information contact our business service office at 864-467-8080 or at employerinfo@greenvillecounty.org.
Work Experience (WE)
Work experience is a planned, structured learning experience that takes place in a workplace for a limited period of time. This temporary training program allows registered WIOA participants an opportunity to gain exposure to the world of work. The training opportunity may be paid or unpaid. For more information contact our business service office at 864-467-8080 or at employerinfo@greenvillecounty.org.
Incumbent Worker Training (IWT)
Incumbent Worker Training provides resources for businesses to train currently employed workers in an effort to keep businesses and workers competitive. IWT provides funding for training needed in current businesses due to expansion, new technology, retooling, new services/product lines and new organizational structuring or as part of a layoff aversion strategy. IWT may also fund training in new businesses if those jobs are ineligible for assistance through ReadySC™, formerly the Center for Accelerated Technology Training (CATT). However, there will be a waiting period of 120 days for new or expanding businesses that displaced workers elsewhere in the United States.
To see if IWT funding is available or to learn more information, please contact SC Works Business Services at 864-467-8080.
