The Federal Aviation Administration's Second Career Program.
The Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) retraining program is for air traffic controllers who have been removed from their jobs due to either operational or medical disqualifications. The FAA's New England region second career program deals mainly with older adults who have completed their child rearing and related family responsibilities by the time they enter the program. The services provided by the second career program include vocational counseling and assessment, training, monitoring client progress, and placement services. In the New England program, primary emphasis is placed on securing on-the-job training situations for clients. According to follow-up questionnaire responses, 25% of the program graduates are currently employed. (Interviews with program participants which represent a variety of career choices and training situations are included.) (LRA)
