David M. Raises the Flag at the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum each day.
An On The Job Training (OJT) through Brevard Achievement Center with the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum
The American Police Hall of Fame and Museum (APHF), founded in 1960, is the nation’s first law enforcement museum and memorial dedicated to officers killed in the line of duty. Located in Titusville Florida, the APHF was a natural choice for Brevard Achievement Center (BAC) participant David M. to work closely with for an On The Job Training.
David started working with BAC while he was attending Astronaut High School and has completed several OJTs through the program offerings of BAC. For the participant, OJT offers a paid (no less than minimum wage) opportunity to gain job skills and experience of what it’s like to work in an employment environment. For the employer, this program is an opportunity to mentor someone who wants to work and learn new skills, as well as have an employee for a specific time period – all at no cost.
David graduated high school this year and began a successful OJT in the museum at the APHF. He raises the flag each morning when he works, gives tours and you can often find him at the front desk.
Pictured below with his supervisor Jayme DiGennaro. Jayme has said that David is punctual, responsible, dependable, and a fast learner. She said he “surpasses expectations for a new, young employee. He completes tasks in a timely manner. When he sees something that needs to be done, he automatically goes ahead and does it”. David has a great memory and is pleasant and good with guests.
The Museum, through interactive displays, simulators, and nearly 11,000 artifacts, educates the public about the history and current trends in American law enforcement. Students can learn about safety, science, forensics and so much more!
They like David so much at the APHF that they have offered him a permanent part-time job. (He is thinking about taking it).
Congratulations David on your successful on the job training, and building relationships that will last your career!

Many of the individuals we work with need a more diverse resume to give them a greater chance of obtaining employment. By “hiring” someone through the OJT program, you’ll be providing that experience.
Here’s how the program works:
You and our candidate meet to discuss the job, your expectations, and job requirements.
If the decision is favorable, we’ll work with you to arrange a start date.
For eight to 12 weeks, depending on your needs, you’ll teach and train our participants at your business.
During that period the participant is expected to learn new skills that they can not only add to their resume but take with them to another, similar job.
You are not expected to hire the individual at the end of the OJT period, but it’s okay if you do.
All employee costs, including wages and worker’s compensation, are paid for by BAC.
