These fourteen courses are included: money handling, cooking, reading, time, writing, personal identification, use of the telephone, use of the post office, transportation, measurement, housekeeping, clothing care, self-care and personal hygiene, and shopping. Each course is divided into skill areas which consist of a number of objectives.

The procedure is presented as a training sequence which describes the procedure in steps with corresponding keypoints that detail teacher information and client instruction.
