Service Station Attendant and Light Automotive Maintenance, Course Description.
Clifford, Jack W.; And Others
Prepared by instructors and curriculum specialists, this course of study was designed to meet the individual needs of the dropout and/or hard-core unemployed youth by providing training as a service station attendant and light automotive maintenance mechanic. The achievement level of each student is determined at entry, and small instructional units are used to provide continuing positive reinforcement to minimize frustration. Training in this area is conducted in a public service station operated by the Work Opportunity Center. Instruction is provided in driveway sales, lubrication engine tune-up, brake work, and other repair and maintenance tasks short of major overhaul or body work. Students may receive such related instruction as mathematics, sales, accounting, and communications at the Center in addition to the related units taught at the station. Brief descriptions of other instructional areas, teaching techniques, material utilization, motivational devices, and case studies are appended. Related materials are available as VT 011 518-VT 011 533 in this issue. (GR)
