The purpose of the Career Achievement Skills Training Program (CAST) is to equip students with the skills they need to make decisions and career plans. The author maintains that skills are observable, measurable and repeatable behaviors. He teaches these skills in three phases. First, students learn how to expand knowledge about themselves and a particular type of job by using people and things as resources. The next phase, the narrowing phase helps the students relate the career information to their value using a decision-making process. Finally, in the preparing stage, the students participate in an interview-internship with a person working in the field in which they are interested, and reevaluate their job decisions in light of their life styles and values. This manual describes the steps taken in educating teachers and counselors in the use of the CAST program. (HMV)
