How much do you know about the CDOT On-the-Job-Training (OJT) Program? Did you know:

  • CDOT sets goals for prime contractors to train journeyman workers on construction projects? 
  • CDOT compensates primes for a portion of the trainees hourly wage? 
  • Small businesses and subcontractors can also have an OJT plan and use it as a marketing tool to help prime contractors meet their goals while getting valuable training for their employees? 
  • Business in a labor union and members of the Colorado Contractors Association have a fast-track way to an OJT plan?

There are a lot of benefits to having an OJT plan if you know how to make it work for you. This workshop will help you understand how to create an OJT program, develop a plan, have it approved by CDOT and help advance your employees in skilled trades. 

CDOT will also provide an overview of upcoming projects in Region 5 and facilitate a networking session for local area contractors.

Presenters:
Karen Fujii-Martin, CDOT Compliance Specialist
Monica Vialpando, CDOT Civil Rights Specialist
Cathy Kramer, Connect2DOT Program Manager

Suggested Audience:
Staff involved with project management and compliance for all types of construction firms, large and small, that want to work on CDOT projects.
