Part 3 presents 10 principles of good job instruction and discusses how they lead to the step-by-step process of job training. Part 4 is an overview of instructional methods, techniques, and aids. Each method is defined, and advantages, disadvantages, uses, and standard format are provided. Part 5 describes aids that could assist instructors in a wide range of vocational training tasks. The focus of part 6 is how to tackle job instruction in a logical manner. Topics are preparation, job breakdowns, training task breakdowns, and attitudinal training.
