Software for Managing the Process of Manpower Training for Economic and Industrial Development.
Catoline, James E.
This document discusses the training capabilities, software, and related products of GTE Sylvania Training Operations (STO). With the rapid emergence and development of the Third World, the technical knowhow of large manufacturing industries has become a marketable commodity in the international transfer of technology. Manpower training and human resource development are considered essential to this transfer, to provide qualified specialists to take over the operation of factories, businesses, and institutions of higher education in the developing nation. STO has developed a number of curricular materials and evaluation instruments for its training programs, which are available and can be useful to technical and language training programs, whether academic, commercial, or industry-related. These include an English Proficiency Test, a Language Competency Scale, an Oral Interview Rating System, a Cross-Cultural Orientation Course, a Modern Concepts of Management Course, Applied Sciences Aptitude Test Batteries, and English for Special Purposes Curriculum, Intensive Courses in several languages, and other useful materials discussed in this document.
