The Calumet Area Industrial Commission (CAIC) administers funding for On the Job Training of new employees with private sector employers throughout the Chicagoland area. The OJT Program has been established to help unemployed and displaced workers train for new careers and assist employers with the cost of training new workers in the skills required to be productive employees within their respective enterprises. CAIC works directly with your HR department to ensure that only candidates that meet your specific needs are referred to your business for potential training. Because CAIC knows industry, they find employees with the work skills and work histories that fit with the job specifications. You make the final decision on whether a candidate meets your standards. You may be reimbursed for 50% of the trainee’s wages for up to two months of on the job training. This amount is reimbursed to you directly by CAIC.
