Marine Technician Training and Employment: A Current Overview and Assessment. Summary.
Mitchell, Leonard; Goodman, Joel
This publication is designed to provide guidelines for future program management decisions and is based on data from three sources: research into the nature and development of emerging training programs and supply/demand relationship for technician occupations in the marine sciences; site visits with directors and staff of such training programs and with employers of their graduates; and workshops to allow and observe interaction between professionals closely associated with marine technician training. Four recommendations are presented, following an assessment of the data. Appendices include bibliographical data related to training program director workshops and marine technician training programs. Samples of training program curricula are presented. References are included. (Author/EB)
