Industrial Hygiene Technology: A Curriculum Planning Resource Guide.
Heath, Walter D.; Spetz, Sally H.
This curriculum resource guide, one of seven developed by the State of Illinois to present information on new and emerging curricula existing in the nation, can be used as a basis for local educators to determine the resources needed to offer industrial hygiene technician curricula and to initiate curriculum development at the local level. Chapters 1 and 2 contain an introduction and procedures for using the guide. Chapter 3 describes the job duties and typical employers of industrial hygiene technicians. In chapter 4 alternative curriculum approaches are presented--an associate degree program and certificate program. Chapter 5 discusses these resources required to implement the program: curriculum advisory committee, facilities and equipment, and instructor qualifications. The final chapter contains fifteen abstracts of curriculum and instructional materials; information provided includes title, author(s), availability, and price. Appendixes include lists of schools offering coursework in industrial hygiene, related agencies/organizations and journals/periodicals, and equipment lists and inventories. (A report of the project that identified the seven new and emerging occupations is available as CE 025 423. See Note for other curriculum resource guides in ERIC.) (YLB)
