FEASIBILITY OF ESTABLISHMENT OF ASSOCIATE DEGREE PROGRAM IN MARINE TECHNOLOGY AT CLATSOP COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
TOLONEN, PAUL
THIS STUDY ATTEMPTS TO DETERMINE WHAT BASES EXIST FOR ESTABLISHING THE FIRST CURRICULUM OF THIS NATURE ON THE WEST COAST. DISCUSSIONS WERE HELD BETWEEN LOCAL MARITIME PEOPLE AND THE COLLEGE STAFF. RESULTS OF A SURVEY OF 51 HIGH SCHOOLS SHOWED 264 STUDENTS INTERESTED IN ENROLLING. A SURVEY OF 79 GOVERNMENT AND INDUSTRY EMPLOYERS INDICATED THAT 142 EMPLOYEES WOULD BE EMPLOYABLE FOR LONGER TERMS IF THEY HAD THIS TRAINING, 75 OTHER PERSONS WERE INTERESTED IN THE TRAINING, AND APPROXIMATELY 2,588 PERSONS PER YEAR HAD BEEN REFUSED EMPLOYMENT BECAUSE THEY LACKED THIS TRAINING. AN EMPLOYMENT SURVEY OF 46 MARITIME INDUSTRIES IN OREGON INDICATED THAT 414 ADDITIONAL EMPLOYEES WOULD BE NEEDED IN 2 YEARS AND 559 WOULD BE NEEDED IN 5 YEARS. ANOTHER PORTION OF THE SURVEY WAS BASED ON A TENTATIVE CURRICULUM WHICH WAS DERIVED FROM JOB ANALYSIS, AND FROM TWO EXISTING CURRICULA FROM THE EAST COAST. EMPLOYERS WERE ASKED TO RATE THE CURRICULUM ELEMENTS AS TO THEIR IMPORTANCE IN LIGHT OF TRAINING NEEDS. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT (1) THE SECOND-YEAR CURRICULUM BE REFINED IN LIGHT OF NEW INFORMATION, (2) VOCATIONAL AND TECHNICIAN OPTIONS BE OFFERED, (3) SHIPBOARD INSTRUCTION BE INCLUDED, (4) EXISTING COURSES BE USED WHEN POSSIBLE, (5) CONTACT BE MAINTAINED WITH INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT, AND (6) MERCHANT MARINE TRAINING BE EXPLORED. SURVEY FORMS, SURVEY DATA, AND CURRICULUM INFORMATION ARE INCLUDED IN THE APPENDIX. (EM)
