Accident Investigation Technician Instructor Training Institute. Final Report.
Daugherty, Ronald D.; And Others
To assist States in implementing Highway Safety Program Standard 18, "Accident Investigation and Reporting", the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration funded an instructor training program for a new occupational field in highway safety, accident investigation technician. The Center for Vocational and Technical Education executed this program by developing a curriculum model and by conducting five regional training workshops. The workshops had two purposes, the primary one to evolve a basic curriculum package from the model and the secondary to train instructors and improve teaching skills. The curriculum package consisted of a course guide, the instructor's lesson plan guide, and a student study guide. The workshops provided 30 hours of teacher training for the 64 participants from 35 States, a nationwide sampling selected for their knowledge of accident investigation and major teaching or coordinating responsibilities. The curriculum package developed at the workshops is not a final product; field testing and evaluation will be performed before acceptance and publication. The report includes pre-workshop information, workshop programs, and participant evaluation forms. (CD)
