Center for Occupational Research and Development, Inc., Waco, TX.; Technical Education Research Centre-Southwest, Waco, TX.
This guide describes Energy Conservation-and-Use Technology (ECUT), identifies job categories for technicians working in the field, and assists planners, administrators, faculty, and industrial and community educators in establishing and conducting relevant training programs. Section 1 defines the ECU technicians, provides a job description, and describes ECUT job performance requirements. A model ECUT curriculum plan is provied in section 2. Content is analyzed and course descriptions are presented. Other topics covered are content and format of instructional materials and adaptation for use in cooperative and continuing education. Program planning and development is the focus of section 3. These considerations are explored: establishment of advisory committee, needs determination, faculty selection, library, equipment, student selection and services, and laboratory facilities. Section 4 overviews program implementation and evaluation. Appendixes, amounting to almost three-fourths of the guide, include types of equipment with which ECU technicians work, ECUT curriculum (semester system), 23 ECUT course outlines (with descriptions and module titles and time required), survey-of-needs questionnaire, library references and periodicals, and equipment list for ECUT curriculum by course.
