Chapter III summarizes results of the evaluation of the program and documents training outcomes for participants and their respective centers. Finally, Chapter IV provides selected case studies of three participants. Data were collected from personal interviews, participants' journals, instructors, supervisors, and an exit interview.

Extensive appendices provide promotional literature, correspondence of candidates, names of resource instructors, course outlines, a certificate of completion, evaluation instruments, participant responses to a training needs assessment and program evaluation, a work environment profile, supervisor feedback, and participants' research topics.
