Special Project: Data Base for Millmen and Cabinetmaker Curriculum. Final Report for Phase I.
Oregon Alliance for Program Improvement, Corvallis.
This project was conducted to develop an apprentice-related training curriculum for cabinetmakers and millmen in Oregon. During the project, a task inventory for the occupation of cabinetmaker/millman was produced, the components of a complete four-year related training program were identified, a nationwide search for existing instructional material related to the occupations was conducted, the usability of the available materials was assessed, and recommendations for what could be used in a curriculum and what had to be created were made. A steering committee was used to provide direction and evaluation, and the task inventory produced was verified by industry personnel in Oregon. A course outline was developed for the total program, broken down into segments of instruction, and approved by the steering committee; a resource was provided for each instructional item on the course outline. A final report was produced which provides an instructional base for supporting a complete related training program. Extensive appendixes to the report include the following: request and proof of need for curriculum, background material on task inventory, survey sample sheet, survey results, employer interview, states' outlines, contacts and addresses, and materials used and/or produced for the project.
