A description is given of a 6 week program for practicing professionals, by which they may update knowledge and skills. Part 1 consists of graduate level lectures and assignments, a series of seminars planned and conducted by the participants, and several tours of local transit facilities. Part 2 consists of a lecture-study tour of major North American and European cities. The strong endorsement of the lecture-study tour segment by participants supports the view that practical field study is an essential element of such a program. Two devices which have appeared helpful in defining the application of fundamental areas to specific problem situations are the case study and the seminar.
