Handbook on Careers Relating to the Environment. Preliminary Edition.
Illinois State Office of Education, Springfield. Div. of Vocational and Technical Education.
This document is designed to be a "state of the arts" in education for environmental occupations in Illinois. This document contains three major parts. The first part deals with definitions and basic concepts relating to education for environmental occupations. The second part lists existing and emerging occupations which were considered by the task force to be related to the maintenance and improvement of our natural environment. The third lists existing educational programs in Illinois community colleges, area vocational centers, and other agencies which provide training for entry level skills in selected environmental occupations. It is hoped that this document will be of use to career counselors, occupational instructors, teacher-training institutions, learners interested in entering and progressing with an environmental occupation, and others interested in enhancing the quality and scope of occupational education in Illinois.
