Problems and Issues in Industry-Sponsored Vocational Programs: Implications for Research and Development. Occasional Paper No. 67.
Musick, Craig D.
In this presentation, Craig D. Musick, director of training for the Graniteville Company in South Carolina and president of the American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), focuses on how research can contribute to a better understanding of the vocational training process. He states that only by working together with the schools can industry hope to meet its needs for personnel trained to produce the goods and services of the future. Musick emphasizes the need for closer cooperation between industry and traditional in-school training programs as students move back and forth between the classroom and the work place. He notes the increasing age of the American workforce and discusses the implications of the age increase in regard to increased training needs, the need for greater productivity, and increasing mechanization of the work place. In a question-and-answer session, Musick describes training programs carried out by the textile company for which he works, and focuses on training research provided by the ASTD. (KC)
