The On-the-Job Training Program Special Provision is used to direct training opportunities to minority, female and other economically disadvantaged individuals. The purpose of the training is to develop marketable skills for the individuals and allow them to gain journey worker status in highway construction crafts.
Each year certain projects are designated to have Trainee slots. The OJT Special Provision is added to the contract for those designated projects.
Effective March 1, 2002 the SDDOT Civil Rights Program took over the administration of the Associated General Contractors On-the-Job Training Program Program. All Trainees, whether mandated by contract requirement or not, are to be registered with the SDDOT. A separate A.G.C. registration and weekly status report forms are no longer necessary. All registrations and monthly status reports are to be sent into the SDDOT Civil Rights Program. A Trainee must be registered within a week of the start date. For every Trainee the contractor needs to complete a Monthly Trainee Status Report and submit that within thirty (30) days following the last pay period of the month.
OJT Forms & Instructions:
The only approved Training Program that may be used on highway construction projects in South Dakota is the SDDOT-A.G.C. Training Program.
