Breath Examiner Specialist Instructor Training Institute. Final Report.
Dunlap and Associates, Inc., Darien, CT.
Five regional training institutes were held in the spring of 1972 to develop a cadre to teach the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration curriculum package, "Basic Training Program for Breath Examiner Specialist." Emphasis of the institutes was on the development of teaching skills, rather than breath testing skills. Enrollees were drawn from 42 states, Puerto Rico, and Washington, D.C. Two-thirds of the enrollees represented law enforcement services, with the rest from alcohol safety programs, state agencies, and universities. This report contains information and materials about institute planning, enrollee selection, and institute conduct and evaluation. Lesson outlines used by instructors at each of the five institutes are included in the appendixes. Evaluation indicated that 96 percent of the enrollees found the institutes to be quite valuable or exceptionally valuable to them as instructors. Course-related instructor training covering teaching techniques required by the curriculum package was appreciated. The report recommends the funding of similar institutes for other highway safety courses. (MF)
