The third section focuses on the curriculum and includes general and specific behavioral course objectives, a topical two-year course outline, clinical experience, and instructional resources. Section 4 presents some general facilities guidelines with illustrations, a list of suggested instruments and portable equipment, and a list of suggested initial supplies. The last section discusses follow-up activities, such as student placement (includes a sample employability profile form) postsecondary opportunities, and certification of the dental technician. (EM)
