Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Information Collection and Exchange Div.
This Peace Corps training manual was developed from two existing manuals to provide a comprehensive training program in fish production for Peace Corps volunteers. The manual encompasses the essential elements of the University of Oklahoma program that has been training volunteers in aquaculture for 25 years. The 22 chapters of the manual are arranged in three sections. Chapters 1-9 introduce the aquaculture training program and provide information on the following: philosophy and methodology, goals and objectives, site requirements, length of training, trainee qualifications and assessment, staff qualifications and training, and summaries of 8- or 10-week training programs and program design considerations. Chapters 10-19 take the instructor through a 10-week program, with Chapter 10 outlining the program and the following chapters providing the training materials for each week of the program. Chapter 20 discusses program evaluation; and recommendations for in-country training. Lists of publications, equipment, and materials comprise the final two chapters. (KC)
