Commercial Driving School Instructor: Project at Ohlone College: Final Report.
American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, Washington, DC.
A driver education task analysis was completed and instructional material was developed under a different contract but in conjunction with this and a companion project. Different editions of a teacher's guide were written for secondary schools and driving schools. The former was disseminated through workshops for college and university teacher-educators. The Driving School edition was utilized in conjunction with pilot projects in two selected community colleges: Essex in New Jersey and Ohlone in California. A model two-year Associate Degree was planned and courses specific to the teaching performance of the driving school instructor were developed and lesson material written. Individual courses with driver-trainer content attracted inservice driving school employees. There was little response to the two-year program from full-time preemployment students. A shorter "certificate" program was recommended for the occupation of commercial driving school instructor. Recommended for a future "degree" program was the incorporation of a variety of driver and vehicle-related courses. These would permit recruitment from a broader range of occupations. Appended are lists of instructors, and courses offered, course outlines, and associate degree requirements. A three-page bibliography completes the document. (Author/BP)
