Intended for regional and in-country Peace Corps staff, this guide contains standards that are the minimum expectations for Peace Corps training worldwide. The introduction sets forth nine assumptions that underlie the use and monitoring of the standards and also contains tabular material that describes how the standards will be used and monitored at each level of the organization. The following seven sections of the document state the standards: (1) Delegation of Training Responsibilities, which covers the assignment of a training manager and establishment of an in-country training resource center; (2) Preliminary Work Conducted by In-Country Staff, which concerns task analyses and site survey and selection; (3) Personal Service Contracts for Training, which includes a description of the work and the selection and hiring of training staff; (4) Preparation Required by the Training Staff; (5) Training Content, which includes the minimum formal training, the required topic areas, and descriptions of the family live-in experiences and required practical experiences; (6) Trainee Assessment; and (7) Evaluation, which describes the final reports to be submitted to the country staff and the trainer performance evaluation to be completed by the trainees about the training program itself.
