This document, one of eight in a multi-cultural competency-based vocational/technical curricula series, is on fiberglass technician. This program covers 12 instructional areas: orientation, safety, introduction to fiberglass-reinforced plastics, hand lay-up, introduction to equipment operation, chopper operation, gel-coat equipment, finish and repair, mold-making, quality control, woodworking, and industrial relations. A duty-task index lists competencies in each instructional area that the student should be able to perform at the end of the program. For example, in the hand lay-up section, a student should be able to (1) identify and explain the use of lamination tools and materials, (2) prepare a mold, and (3) laminate the mold. In section 1, each instructional task area contains a list of performance objectives, evaluation criterion, performance guide, and a list of tasks to be covered. In section 2, the introduction and duty-task index is repeated in English, Spanish, and Laotian. Section 3 lists technical terms concerning fiberglass technology in English, Spanish, and Laotian.
