Manpower Training; Some Cost Dimensions.
Some of the dimensions of the relative financial contribution of the cooperating parties in manpower institutional training as established under the Manpower Development and Training Act of 1962 were explored. This analysis will provide some perspective to those who must finally decide the question of relative financial contribution, or provide them with a certain range of the cost dimensions of the program. Discussed in this document are: (1) some cost dimensions of manpower training, (2) total cost of the manpower development program, (3) space, equipment, program planning and on-the-job institutional training, (4) indirect cost, (5) cost requirement, (6) individual educational return, (7) the training gap, (8) cost effectiveness, (9) MDTA as a bridge between industry and education, (10) new occupations, (11) public relations and community liason, (12) MDTA contribution to local training effort, (13) the Keene, New Hampshire project, (14) educational innovation, (15) some problems. It was recommended that an integrated decision-making system in the occupational training area be developed to insure that the total occupational training effort of the Federal Government achieves the worthy goal of training all individuals to their full capacity.
