Howard, Walter R.
For those individuals wishing to know more about the topic, this publication provides an introduction to industry-specific training. The need for industry-specific training programs (ISTPs) is addressed. An overview follows of how to develop the capacity needed in state and local organizations to design and implement industry-specific programs. A section on marketing outlines some factors that training providers should consider in developing a marketing plan. The next section relates the elements of program design to ISTPs. It enumerates the characteristics of good programs and focuses on tailoring program design elements to ISTPs. Barriers to program development are also identified. A discussion of trends in industry-specific training concludes the paper. An annotated list of resources describes sources of further information about ISTPs. (YLB)
