A project implemented cooperative training programs in the three occupational areas: ADA computer language use; respiratory therapy technician; and hospital pharmacy technician. The project's purpose was to demonstrate high technology training programs for adults as a cooperative effort among the West Virginia Department of Education, local schools, business and industry, higher education institutions, and other private and governmental agencies. An advisory committee and consultants assisted project staff in identifying materials and equipment needs, reviewing existing curriculum, adapting or developing curriculum, designing instructional processes, and securing materials and equipment. Although existing curricula with minor modifications were used for the health occupations programs, a new curriculum was developed for the computer language program. Two instructors were used for the respiratory therapy and ADA language programs; one was used for the pharmacy technician program. A third-party evaluation verified that all three instructional programs and the overall project met objectives and carried out planned activities. (Appendixes, amounting to over four-fifths of the report, include the following: final financial report, final site report from the Carver Career and Technical Center regarding respiratory therapy technician and pharmacy technician programs, final site report from Marion County Technical Center regarding computer language program, third-party evaluation report with instruments, and survey information report.)
