Steelworker 1 & C. Rate Training Manual and Nonresident Career Course. Revised Edition.
Essinger, Patrick J.
This Rate Training Manual and Nonresident Career Course (RTM/NRCC) form a self-study package that will enable Steelworkers First and Chief to help themselves fulfill the requirements of their rating. (These positions direct and coordinate efforts of individuals and crews in cutting, welding, placing and erecting rigid frame and other pre-engineered buildings, structures, and tanks; lay out, cut, bend, and place reinforcing steel; maintain records and reports on job progress and material estimates; and supervise and coordinate all tasks assigned to a unit.) Designed for individual study and not formal classroom instruction, the RTM provides subject matter that relates directly to the occupational standards of the Steelworker rating. Topics covered in the eight chapters of the RTM include administration; supervision; shop and construction site organization; construction inspections and quality control; advanced base planning, embarkation, and project turnover; planning, estimating, and scheduling; metals identification and testing; and company chief. An appendix contains an illustrated list of hand signals used in this occupation. The NRCC provides a way of satisfying the requirements for completing the RTM. Assignments in the NRCC include learning objectives and supporting items designed to lead the student through the RTM. (KC)
