On-the-job Training (OJT)
With OJT, employees learn how to perform all or parts of their job after they are hired and while they are at work, typically through hands-on experience. For example, using the same resources and location required for the actual job, an experienced employee might teach a new employee how to perform job skills. We recommend the use of structure OJT tools, such as checklists and feedback forms, in order to provide a consistent approach. OJT can also be delivered in a more robust, blended format. For example, in their first few days on the job, new equipment operators at a factory might complete eLearning that introduces equipment and production flow and complete instructor-led training that introduces safety guidelines. We recommend OJT when new employees need to earn a certification, learn a trade, or master a set of skills specific to your organization.
