Approach to Geographical Distribution of Vocational Training and Training Delivery Methods. Job Corps Vocational Education Offerings Review. Documentation Report No. 6.

As part of a multiphased evaluation of vocational training provided by the Job Corps in fiscal year 1982, a study examined the approach used by the Job Corps toward geographic distribution of courses and training delivery. Because 14 occupations accounted for over one-half of the training analyzed in this study, the researchers recommended that they be established as designated core occupations and that programs that entail high capital training costs be conducted at regional training centers. A series of training considerations were developed to specify procedures for implementing programs to train students for the following occupations: word processing machine operators, entry bookkeepers, office machine repairers, production painters, emergency medical technicians, surgical technicians, X-ray technicians, computer operators, and computer service technicians. Concluding this guide are optional approaches for determining Job Corps training occupations. (The individual training considerations are included in this report.) (MN)
