Machinist Curriculum Manual.
Gourley, Frank A., Jr.
This manual represents the results of a North Carolina Department of Community Colleges project to update the machinist curriculum using performance competencies as a basis for determining curriculum content and objectives. Chapter I provides information on program implementation; curriculum design; faculty selection, workload, and responsibilities; facility and equipment requirements; instructional materials; library support; and liaisons with machine shop associations. Chapter II describes the activities of the curriculum development project, including appointing curriculum committees, identifying instructional resources, surveying selected industries to determine training needs, listing and validating machinist tasks by job levels, analyzing tasks, writing competencies and evaluative criteria, specifying tasks by educational level, proposing course content, developing course descriptions and a curriculum guide, and providing information on available resources. Chapter III presents job descriptions for machinists, machine set-up operators, and machine operators. Chapter IV presents the curriculum guide, which suggests a four-quarter series of machine shop, math, and general education courses; and provides descriptions and detailed outlines for each, specifying objectives, activities, and texts. Chapter V provides a list of necessary equipment, and Chapter VI identifies selected instructional resources for the machinist curriculum. The appendices provide survey results and job and task analyses. (AYC)
