Guidelines for Colleges and Universities

On-the-job training (OJT) through Surge Marketplace’s Apprenticeship Program is an avenue for students to practice digital expertise and get an online job experience and certification.

About the College On-the-Job Training (OJT)

Students will be assisting FVA Business Consultancy Corp OPC (FVA) and other businesses with hands-on tasks. They will work with real tasks remotely with a required number of hours practicing desired work outputs.

The purpose of this program is to allow your students to help real-time operations while enhancing their skills, confidence, and experience in the process. We aspire not just to polish their job skills remotely but also sharpen their work ethics so each can be ready for work success.

Who can join the program?

The program is open to all accredited colleges and universities, requiring their students to do On-the-Job Training (OJT) as part of their curriculum. It is open also to those who want to gain remote work experience and practice digital expertise.


The working hours will be from Monday to Friday, from 8am-5pm (12-1pm break time) and will be covered for two (2) months with a total of 320 hours.

These hours will be tracked remotely through a time tracker and work outputs will be monitored daily by a Project Manager.
