HIGHWAY PERSONNEL EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM
A prior research project disclosed the need to improve the overall efficiency of the Arkansas Highway Department's maintenance personnel. Various methods were utilized to identify training needs. Training materials were developed internally, except for certain topics, which were developed by external experts. The Academy-type training method was chosen to administer the training, and the personnel developing the material were asked to serve as instructors. A pilot Academy was conducted to test the established program. Various methods were used to evaluate the Academy. The pilot effort was so successful that the Academies have been included as a regular part of the continuing AHD training program.
