On-the-Job Training/Contract Compliance

Contractor-Based OJT

Please be advised the Contractor Based On-the-Job Training Pilot Program has been extended through June 30, 2017

The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) created its On-the-Job Training Program (OJT Program) and Special Provision to fulfill the Training Special Provision requirements of federal-aid highway construction contracts included in 23 CFR 230, Appendix B to Subpart A.

The Contractor-Based On-the-Job Training Pilot Program will be effective for a one-year period from July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016. All successful bidders will automatically be placed in the Pilot Program beginning on July 1, 2015. Standard OJT requirements associated with individual projects will no longer be applied at the project level for new projects. OJT requirements will be applicable on an annual basis for each contractor performing work on ADOT projects. During the OJT Pilot Program, each contractor meeting the threshold described in Subsection 1.04 of this Training Special Provision will be required to provide training for one trainee at a minimum of 1,000 hours.

The ADOT Contractor Based OJT Pilot Program does not apply to construction projects that are funded through ADOT, but administered by Certification Acceptance (CA) Agencies.

Pilot program requirements allow contractors to use OJT hours from ADOT and non-ADOT projects to meet their OJT obligations for the pilot program. As such, a contractor may choose to apply hours that are obtained from a project that is administered by a CA toward their pilot program requirements. A contractor may not; however, apply hours to a CA project from a different project.
