Assessing Training Requirements for High Demand Occupations Suitable for Job Corps. Job Corps Vocational Education Offerings Review. Documentation Report No. 3.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Job Corps.
As part of a multiphase study of Job Corps vocational education offerings and outcomes during fiscal year 1982, a study examined Job Corps efforts and procedures for identifying high growth occupations. Using input from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, researchers identified high growth occupations for which the Job Corps is either currently not providing training or is providing training to fewer than 25 corpsmembers. Based on their study, the researchers recommended that the Job Corps provide additional training for the following occupations: word processing machine operators; data entry operators; billing machine operators, proof machine operators, and payroll clerks; business machine repairers; production painters; emergency medical, surgical, and X-ray technicians; computer operators; and computer service technicians. (Included in this guide are training consideration sheets for each of these occupations, consisting of discussions of job duties, employer hiring requirements and preferences, training information, and job outlook.)
