Idaho Cooperative Demonstration Grant in Construction and Mining. Final Report.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise. Div. of Vocational Education.
A project was conducted in Idaho to develop, implement, evaluate, and disseminate a cooperative construction and mining training program to provide preapprenticeship training in construction trades, equipment operation and construction truck driving, apprenticeship-related instruction, and classes in more technical areas for journeyworker upgrading. The cooperative program was a joint effort between the Consortium of Area Vocational Education Schools (CAVES), Associated General Contractors (AGC), Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training (BAT), and mining companies in Idaho. During the project, preapprenticeship programs particularly for females and minority groups in equipment operation and/or construction truck driving were provided; preapprentices were given related instruction in the five basic construction trades; and related instruction for mining apprentices and upgrade classes for journey construction workers in technical areas were developed. The project served more than 700 participants. (Curriculum guides developed for the courses constitute the largest part of this report.) (KC)
