OJT Supportive Services

What is OJT/Supportive Services?

The OJT/Supportive Services (OJT/SS) is a program of the Federal Highway Administration. It was created to complement the Federal Highway Administration On-the-Job Training (OJT) program. The OJT/SS program is an incentive program designed to assist state transportation agencies (STAs) in the development and enhancement of their job training and apprenticeship programs using federal funds.

The primary objectives of OJT/SS are as follows:

  • Increase the overall effectiveness of the STAs' approved training programs.
  • Seek other ways to increase the training opportunities for women, minorities and disadvantaged individuals.

Who is eligible for assistance?

Individuals who are interested in construction careers and/or enrolled in an approved apprenticeship program are eligible for assistance. The ADOT Business Engagement and Compliance Office, OJT/SS Unit is responsible for oversight of the program and is available to answer questions and/or assist contractors interested in OJT Supportive Services or their trainees, as well as minorities, women and veterans interested in obtaining skilled trades in the Highway Construction Industry.
