SAN DIEGO FACILITY SETS NEW PATTERN FOR APPRENTICE TRAINING.
ARNOLD, WALTER M.
THE APPRENTICE TRADES BUILDING AT SAN DIEGO MESA COLLEGE WAS ERECTED WITH COOPERATIVE FINANCING BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (UNDER THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACT OF 1963), THE COMMUNITY SCHOOL SYSTEM, LABOR UNIONS, AND INDUSTRY. THE STRUCTURE AND SITE COST OF $339,000 WAS PROVIDED FROM FEDERAL AND SCHOOL DISTRICT FUNDS, WHILE THE EQUIPMENT, WORTH $105,000, WAS CONTRIBUTED BY LABOR AND INDUSTRY. IN ITS TWELVE SHOPS, IT REPRESENTS 17 TRADES FOR APPRENTICE TRAINING OR JOURNEYMAN RETRAINING AND, SINCE THE OPENING OF THE FACILITY IN SEPTEMBER 1966, IT HAS SERVED AN AVERAGE OF MORE THAN 700 STUDENTS PER WEEK. THE PLANNERS EXPECT THAT THE PROJECT WILL BEGIN A NEW TREND IN APPRENTICESHIP EDUCATION. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "AMERICAN VOCATIONAL JOURNAL," VOLUME 41, NUMBER 1, JANUARY 1966. (HH)
