Improving Highway Safety Manpower: Traffic Engineering Technician Project at Longview Community College and Community College of Denver. Phase 2. Final Report.
Korim, Andrew S.
In Phase 2, materials on traffic accident investigation were introduced into the curriculum to determine the appropriateness of such materials in preparing traffic engineering technicians. This report gives findings, conclusions, and recommendations based on the testing efforts. The primary conclusion is that the curriculum being tested was adequate to prepare technicians to perform traffic engineering functions. Instructional materials on traffic accident investigation were integrated effectively into the curriculum. The primary recommendation in the report is that the experiences of the participating colleges should be utilized as a frame of reference by other community and junior colleges in developing and offering associate degree and certificate programs to prepare traffic engineering technicians. The appendixes to the report contain an instructor's guide reflecting the experiences of the participating colleges and the suggestions of the instructors who participated in the project. (NTIS)
