Developing Short-Term Training Programs.
This manual offers guidelines for vocational educators who want to develop and conduct short-term training programs for business and industry. The guide is organized in six chapters. Chapter 1 reviews some of the opportunities in short-term training, discusses commonly applied principles of competency-based training, and suggests a practical model for developing short-term training. The next five chapters are based on the five steps of the model: determining training needs, specifying training objectives, developing a performance evaluation system, developing the training plan, and developing performance guides. Examples and checklists are provided throughout the chapters. Two appendixes contain a performance guide for short-term training development and a four-part outline for conducting short-term interactive training. (KC)
