National Apprenticeship and Training Standards for Orthotic and Prosthetic Technicians.
American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association, Washington, DC.; Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training.
The booklet sets forth the National Apprenticeship and Training Standards for the one-year apprenticeship program for orthotic and/or prosthetic technicians, as developed and recommended by the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association. Standards in various areas--such as qualifications for apprenticeship, hours of work, salaries, records, reports, accident prevention, and equal opportunity--are outlined, and adapting national standards to local use and program supervision--including such topics as responsibilities of apprentices, filing with the registration agency, and term of apprenticeship--are reviewed. Continuous revision of the standards is planned. Five appendixes include work processes for orthotic and prosthetic technicians, apprentice recordkeeping, the apprenticeship agreement, and Federal laws and regulations affecting the employment of apprentices. Location lists for regional offices and State and territorial apprenticeship agencies, and samples of apprenticeship certificates also are included. (NH)
