Summary

This publication discusses criteria for post-secondary education of technicians as illustrated by the accumulated experience of successful programs which have had their graduates sought after by employees. Chapter headings are (1) Technicians: Who They Are and What They Do, (2) Administration of Programs to Educate Technicians, (3) Physical Facilities, (4) Faculty, (5) Student Selection and Services, and (6) The Curriculum. The objective of such programs is to provide a broadly based competency in a field of applied sciences of sufficient depth that the graduate may be employed in one of a cluster of related work opportunities. They have no predetermined implications for transferability to a baccalaureate or professional programs, but do not preclude a student's continuation toward such an objective. Courses in a technician's curriculum are usually grouped as basic science, mathematics, technical, communication, and social studies courses. Illustrative 2-year curriculums are given for electronics, metallurgy, ornamental horticulture, dental hygiene and nursing. A bibliography and list of persons who are involved in the development of the guide are included. (EM)
