Proceedings, Conference on Chemical Technicians: Utilization, Education, and Continuing Education (Chicago, Ill., December 6 and 7, 1968).
American Chemical Society, Washington, DC.
The processes and equipment in chemical research and development have become increasingly sophisticated. Accordingly, industry is seeking chemical technicians who have developed an academic and experience base which exceeds that being provided by high schools. This conference is an effort to improve both the quality and quantity of programs for training chemical technicians. Nine presentations, each followed by a critique, concerned (1) the role and functions of the chemical technician in industrial research and production, (2) the curriculum content and institutional role of chemical technician education, and (3) the role of educational institutions and professional associations in programs of continuing education for the chemical technician. Suggested and current chemical technology curriculums are included. (CH)
