Introductory materials include background information on trade and industrial education and program goals and safety information. Descriptions follow of the construction trades program, vocational cooperative education, work experience/unpaid work experience, work experience and career exploration programs, and vocational work study. This job information is then provided: job titles and a task inventory for machine trades.
