Bowen, Becky; And Others
Based on the results of a needs survey, this directory was compiled to provide vocational teachers and administrators with a listing of businesses and industries located in the Mississippi Appalachian Region which have indicated a willingness to assist in the maintenance and upgrading of vocational teacher occupational skills. The directory is organized by the following vocational program areas: air conditioning/refrigeration; appliance repair; auto mechanics; auto body and fender repair; aviation occupations; carpentry; cabinet making/furniture making; diesel mechanics; drafting occupations; electrical occupations; electronic occupations; electro-mechanical occupations; farm mechanics; forestry/forestry products occupations; graphic arts occupations; heavy equipment occupations; industrial maintenance occupations; industrial sewing; machining/tool and die making; plumbing and pipefitting; plastics occupations; sheet metal; small engine repair; surveying; upholstering; and welding occupations. For each program area, lists of participating companies, addresses, and names and telephone numbers of contact persons are provided. The directory also indicates the form of possible participation by business or industry in a cooperative skill upgrading project; e.g., work experience of short duration, participation in company training programs, centrally located skill training, or providing literature and materials. A form is provided for those who use the directory to obtain training to report the training to the project coordinator. (KC)
