On-The-Job-Training [OJT]

Overview of OJT Hours

The On-The-Job-Training [OJT] an apprentice receives is vitally important. Through the hands-on training, an apprentice become skilled in the HVAC industry. Guided by an experienced journey person and technician, the apprentice will receive the necessary hands-on training to learn specific skills.

OJT Record-Keeping

It is the responsibility of an apprentice to record each hour spent training and working in each of the Process Areas.

Each day, an apprentice will use an app to record their time using our online system. Within five [5] days after month-end, an apprentice will submit the monthly timesheet to their Supervisor for review. OJT hours, approved by the supervisor, will count towards the 8,000 requirement.

NOTE: We will not accept OJT hours submitted after sixty days following month-end.
