On-the-job training, or OJT is a time efficient and cost-effective method of training and developing employees, utilizing a company’s internal resources, knowledge, and talent. It is usually the principal method used for upskilling employees, increasing production, and improving efficiency. Allowing employees to develop the skills, competencies and knowledge needed to execute their job functions at a high level. While learning how to address and overcome occupational challenges through the systematic observation, analysis, and application of the newly learned skills or techniques.


With on-the-job training, employees first observe their trainer repeatedly completing a series of tasks and achieving a desired result. Then, after observing for some time, the employee will perform the tasks themselves to achieve the same desired outcome. The focused learning of on-the-job training speeds the learning processes while providing a consistent quality of training across all employees. Apprenticeships can also enable practitioners to gain a license to practice in a regulated profession. Most of their training is done while working for an employer who helps the apprentices learn their trade or profession, in exchange for their continued labor for an agreed period after they have achieved measurable competencies. Getting America’s youth curious about and engaged in vocational career opportunities will have remarkable impact on the future workforce. Apprenticeship and pre-apprenticeship programs are an integral aspect of developing the next generation of American led innovation.

On-the-job training is the preeminent method to upskill America’s workforce. It is economical, simple, and effective. It can be implemented by companies both large and small. Plus, it doesn’t require wide-ranging budgets, complex training courses, devoted training staffs or absence from the workplace. All it requires is a commitment to engaging and upskilling employees to efficiently meet production demands. Developing a pool of highly trained frontline employees ready to capitalize on internal or external career growth opportunities. Ultimately, the effectiveness of on-the-job-training can be significantly enhanced by applying a strategically structured approach to training and developing employees. Doing so will yield impressive results and add value to the American economy.
