On-the-Job Training Highlights

The Midlands Workforce Development Board offers businesses in the Lexington, Fairfield and Richland Counties On-the-Job Training (OJT) funds. OJT funds are used to reimburse employers for hiring a Workforce Investment Act (WIA) individual with the skills necessary to do the job but little to no experience in the position in which they are hired. The Midlands Workforce Development Board has focused its OJT resources on helping businesses to train individuals who may have been previously overlooked. 

Highlights of the On-the-Job Training Program:

  • Up to a $2000.00 reimbursement per WIA participant hired.
  • Candidate referrals that are pre-screened by Business and Industry Consultants.
  • All final hiring decisions are made by the employer.
  • Employees who are more loyal because they were given an opportunity to showcase their skills.

The following employers are just a few who have been successful with the OJT program:


McEntire Produce

Rooms to Go



Pontiac Foods

FN Manufacturing


Elite ES

Dunbar Armored
