On-the-Job Training (OJT)

On-the-job training means having a person learn a job by actually doing it. Every employee, from mailroom clerk to CEO, gets on –the –job training when he or she joins a firm. In many firms, OJT is the only training available. (or too often the supervisor simply says,” Here’s your desk; get started,”).


On-the-job training (OJT) is a technique of teaching job skills while the person performs the job.
