On-the-Job Training

The OJT program is designed to assist applicants in securing permanent employment with the public or private sector.  The OJT contract between Cherokee Nation and a business or employer provides Cherokee Nation to reimburse the business or employer up to 50 percent of a participant’s wages during the on-the-job training period, for up to six months.  This is designed to assist the business or employer with the extraordinary cost associated with the training of the participant and increase productivity while they learn the job.
