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. (This document summarizes the program and provides a curriculum guide, course syllabus, course outline, operational instruction and training information, information on trucks and equipment, information on California driving test requirements, program form, and project newsletters.)
