Federal High Tech Cooperative Demonstration Grant. Final Report.
McMurdo, Jenny; Gerel, Don
A model manufacturing training program was created for Oregon's precision metals industry. The program, a cooperative venture among private industry, education, and government, focused on two main goals: to train entry-level employees and to upgrade the skills of current employees in response to technological changes. The program at Clackamas Community College (Oregon) achieved the following goals: (1) development of curricula for one-year certificate and two-year associate programs; (2) design and implementation of a work-readiness assessment and training program; (3) provision of staff development and training for instructors; (4) establishment of a replicable model that could be used by other groups in metals manufacturing; (5) development of a recruitment package designed to attract adults and high school students with special emphasis given to minority populations and women; (6) offering of 36 classes for 200 students by summer 1991; and (7) filling of 100 job vacancies. The program, despite economic fluctuations, has met the main goals and serves as a model for similar projects. (NLA)
