This curriculum guide provides instructional materials to assist in training equipment operators in the safe and effective use of highway maintenance equipment. It includes six units of instruction covering the small, specialized equipment used in maintenance operations. Each unit of instruction consists of eight basic components: performance objectives, teacher activities, information sheets (content essential for meeting the cognitive objectives), assignment sheets (applications of knowledges that are prerequisites to skill development), job sheets (procedures to complete a manipulative or psychomotor skill), transparency masters, tests, and test and assignment sheet answers. Six pieces of equipment are included: oxyacetylene cutting equipment, air compressors and attachments, sweepers, concrete saws, spray equipment, and sandblaster and hydroblaster. For each piece of equipment, this manual covers uses, operation, application, and safety procedures. The materials are suitable for students who are new employees, seasoned operators upgrading skills, or skilled operators reviewing procedures and using these materials for reference. (YLB)
