If you see red on the OJT charts, that's OK. It's just a rough approximation of where the system would expect you to be based on your start and end dates.
There's several reasons why you might see a lot of red on your charts:
- We're missing data that you've completed outside of WorkHands. If this is the case, contact us, and we'll help get this updated.
- You're way ahead on some work processes and not others. Your work isn't neatly organized like the apprenticeship standards. Often, you'll do a lot of one category so you're way ahead in one area and a bit behind elsewhere. That's normal. The red is there so you know where you need to fill gaps before the end of the apprenticeship.
- You've had a gap in work such that your end date isn't quite accurate. If you weren't working for several months due to covid, for example, your real end date might be pushed out, but the end date on WorkHands still assumes everything's going according to schedule. We can just update the projected end date in that case and the projections will update momentarily.
It's also normal for hybrid apprenticeship programs -- where you're tracking skills and hours -- to make much faster progress on skills than hours. If you see your skill progress way ahead of your hours, you're working just as the program was designed to.
