Start-Up Training in Mississippi: Program Development Guide.
Brooks, Kent; And Others
Due to recent industrial growth in Mississippi and the shortage of trained manpower in numerous occupations, start-up training programs have originated to provide a pretrained work force for new or expanding industry in the State. Each start-up training program is a joint effort between a new or expanding industry and a public educational institution that trains prospective company applicants for specific jobs prior to the start of plant operation. Some benefits are: higher standard of living for employees through better jobs, opportunity for prospective employees to explore new and different work before leaving present jobs, high percentage of job placement for employees, use of collective resources of total community, and the elevation of vocational-technical programs to a new level of importance. The guide outlines the steps in developing and accomplishing objectives for each individual program as: establishing rapport, identifying program objectives, specifying training methods/means, conducting the training, and evaluating the program. A complexity of the program is the large number of tasks to be completed in a relatively short period of time. Six industries using start-up training programs are described--areas of training, numbers of participants trained and placed, types of training aids, and unique features of training program. (EA)
