Chapter 5: Trainee GuidelinesAnchor: #i998782
Section 1: Overview
The contractor shall make every effort to enroll minority trainees and women (e.g., by conducting systematic and direct recruitment through public and private sources likely to yield minority and women trainees) to the extent that such persons are available within a reasonable area of recruitment. The contractor will be responsible for demonstrating the steps taken in pursuance thereof, prior to a determination as to whether the contractor is in compliance with the training special provision.
This training commitment is not intended, and shall not be used, to discriminate against any applicant for training, whether a member of a minority group or not. The prospective trainee must express interest in entering the OJT Program, as well as exhibit sufficient commitment to complete the training. These criteria are captured on the Federal OJT Program Enrollment Form.
