PETCO: An American Workplace Simulation.
Johnston, Amy
Passage, v1 n3 p13-17 Win 1985
PETCO is a simulated corporation used as a teaching tool in the pre-employment training program at the Galang Refugee Processing Center in Indonesia. The refugees in the program are in low-level classes. The use of the simulation allows the staff to present hands-on, task-based learning techniques to address four major concerns of refugees entering the American work force: workplace rules, time, payroll, and workplace behavior. PETCO has been integrated into the larger pre-employment training program, and has been found to be successful. (MSE)
