A Year of Accomplishments in Occupational Education in the California Community Colleges.
Brossman, Sidney W.
Postsecondary vocational education in California has been offered almost exclusively in the community colleges, using various short-term certification programs, apprenticeship education, two-year occupational programs leading to an associate of arts degree, and courses designed to upgrade employment and to lead to job advancement. In the 1972-73 period more than 59 percent (538,790) of the total community colleges enrollment (922,065) pursued some occupational training goal. A broad range of activities during the year are described for the following occupational areas: agriculture, distributive trades, banking and finance, health, home economics, office (including professional association, business education management conferences, volunteer income tax assistance program, and competency-based instructional programs), technical, trade and industrial, public service, and criminal justice. The operation of Community College Occupational Program Evaluation System (COPES), is briefly described, a list of ongoing and completed research projects provided. (SA)
