The purpose of these guidelines is to suggest to school districts what should be done to implement a competency based vocational business education program for adults. It also provides guidelines for those districts wanting to organize and administer such a program in their own localities. Ten guidelines are presented in the following areas: (1) adult business education--state of the art, (2) implementing competency based business education, (3) providing adult basic education in a competency based adult vocational business education program, (4) providing competency based measurement, (5) assessing entry level jobs, (6) designing competency based instructional materials, (7) implementing competency based business education programs for adults in an evening school, and (8) implementing competency based business education programs for adults in day schools. In addition, a model competency based adult business education program in an evening school and a model program in a day school are provided. The final section, on teaching adults, provides an example set of guidelines for teaching an adult typewriting program. (LRA)
