Bechtel-Cerritos College Drafting and Designer Training Project.
Cerritos Coll., Norwalk, CA.
Using primarily a question/answer format and numerous graphs and tables, this 18-part report summarizes the goals, operations and budget of a cooperative program administered by Cerritos Community College to train 90 minority, handicapped, and economically disadvantaged individuals for guaranteed placement in drafting and design positions at Bechtel Power Corporation in Norwalk, California. The first sections of the report provide information about Cerritos College, a summary of the project, and lists of participating organizations and other review organizations. The next sections describe the local planning process used to develop the project, discuss local labor market needs, and outline the project's goals and objectives. The bulk of the report presents and illustrates the project's training plan, which consists of two training phases to prepare students for entry-level positions, and an additional phase for 25% of the students to prepare them for higher paying positions. The final sections of the report cover participant support services, monitoring and evaluation procedures, the project's operating plan, and budgets for worksite and classroom training, supplies, and student services.
