SRA Technologies, Inc., Arlington, VA.
This training package is designed for use by staff of the U.S. Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training who are participating in a course dealing with apprenticeship in the future. Addressed in the individual units of the course are the following topics: employment trends of the future (computers, robotics, communications, growth and declining occupations, future employment projections, and the effects of each of these factors on apprenticeship); apprenticeship training, job analysis, modular training, computer-based training); and marketing apprenticeship (using techniques of marketing, marketing campaigns, conducting a briefing, performing a cost/benefit analysis, and researching). Each unit is subdivided into a series of modules containing reference materials (the content of the course lectures, supplementary articles, bibliographies, and sources of further information); exercise materials; and an apprentice training resource guidebook (charts, forms, and summaries of the most important information from the module). The final section of the package is designed for use as an on-the-job desk guide. (MN)
