Handbook of Training in the Public Service.
Starr, Joseph R.
Intended primarily for officers responsible for organizing and conducting training for civil servants in developing countries but useful also in highly industrialized nations, this handbook discusses the principal kinds of training institutions, their missions and functions, and their internal organization and operational problems. It draws on the reports of United Nations experts who served in technical assistance programs and the reports of seminars, conferences, and workshops conducted by the United Nations and covers training before entering civil service; inservice training; organization and coordination of training programs; operational problems in training; and training methods, aids, and materials. Appendixes include a classification of training; standards for planning programs; a checklist for training operations, materials, and personnel; and a bibliography for further research by training officers. There are extensive references and seven tables. This document is supplemented by AC 002 977, "Local Government Training." (jf)
