West Hills College Cooperative Training Network. Final Performance and Financial Status Report.
West Hills Community Coll., Coalinga, CA.
A cooperative training network was developed by West Hills Community College (Coalinga, California), in conjunction with government agencies/private businesses, to train students in truck driving skills. Emphasis was placed on training women, members of minority groups, and disadvantaged persons. During the project, an advisory council was established with business and industry representatives, the curriculum for the truck driving program was redesigned to include a competency-based format and driving recommendations set by the Professional Truck Driving Institute of America, government/industry partners were recruited and cross-trained at workshops, approximately 80 students were trained, and the program was evaluated. Program evaluation showed that the program was very successful in meeting its objectives, except that it fell short in recruiting the number of minority group students (30 percent) and females, handicapped, and otherwise disadvantaged students (30 percent) specified by the project proposal. (This document includes a program evaluation report, baseline management and operational plans, evaluation forms, a newsletter and promotional materials, course information and participant evaluations, partnership agreements, intake instruments, job placement forms, industry survey, sample quarterly report, and administrative information.)
