The Development and Diffusion of the Training and Technology Program: A Decade of Development of Manpower Training, 1965-1975. Final Report.
Demik, Gary H.; And Others
The report describes the development of a model training program, Training and Technology, and subsequent efforts to diffuse the innovation. Before the inception of TAT, a survey study, Resources for Southern Manpower Development, had indicated that the South had considerable manpower development potential and need. TAT was organized by Oak Ridge Associated Universities and Union Carbide Corporation, Nuclear Division to develop the potential and satisfy the need. The program capitalized on the industrial training capacity and the industrial environment of an actual production facility to produce an up-to-date training system carefully designed and frequently modified to meet current industrial needs. The concept in its final form involved six months of full time training with the curricula directed entirely toward actual job skills. When the concept was fully established and its effectiveness demonstrated, ORAU encouraged diffusion of the model. The model is analyzed in terms of its potential for diffusion. (NTIS)
