An instructional resources section lists suggested resources organized by outcome. The section on setting up classroom and laboratory facilities covers facility design recommendations and safety, maintenance, and liability. The next section lists equipment items by outcome. The last section discusses teacher technical updating and teacher standards. A list of professional organizations and support services follows. A Career Merit Achievement Plan (Career MAP) is attached. It displays the competencies required for entry into the field of building maintenance and documents the student's level of achievement.
