DETERMINATION OF EDUCATIONAL NEEDS OF SELECTED JOB TITLES IN FARM IMPLEMENT BUSINESSES IN OKLAHOMA.
MORTON, J. BROWN
THE PURPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO SECURE INFORMATION TO BE USED BY EDUCATORS IN AREA VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS FOR DEVELOPING CURRICULUMS FOR SIX JOB TITLES OF THE FARM IMPLEMENT BUSINESS REQUIRING POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION. THE COMPETENCIES NEEDED BY THE MANAGER, ASSISTANT MANAGER, SALESMAN, PARTSMAN, SHOP FOREMAN, AND MECHANIC WERE IDENTIFIED. THE MANAGERS OR ASSISTANT MANAGERS OF 30 OF THE LARGER FARM IMPLEMENT BUSINESSES IN OKLAHOMA WERE INTERVIEWED TO OBTAIN THE DEGREE OF COMPETENCE NEEDED TO START IN THE WORK OF THE SIX JOB TITLES. THE FINDINGS INDICATED THAT CERTAIN EMPLOYEES OF THE FARM IMPLEMENT BUSINESS NEED AGRICULTURAL TRAINING, AND THAT COMPETENCIES IN HUMAN RELATIONS, SALESMANSHIP AND CUSTOMER RELATIONS, JOB APPLICATIONS AND INTERVIEWS, COMMUNICATIONS, SAFETY, AND SOME COMPETENCIES IN MATHEMATICS WERE HIGHLY IMPORTANT FOR EMPLOYEES. IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT CURRICULUMS BE DEVELOPED FROM THIS STUDY AND THAT SIMILAR STUDIES BE MADE IN OTHER AREAS OF AGRICULTURE AND INDUSTRY. A BIBLIOGRAPHY, THE INTERVIEW INSTRUMENT, AND TABLES OF DATA ARE INCLUDED IN THE APPENDIX.
