The objective of the project was to evaluate the impact of the Associate Degree Program for Traffic Technicians on the students' subsequent job performance as technicians. Data collection was accomplished through the use of personal and telephone interviews with the students, their immediate job supervisors, and the primary instructors of the academic program. The data consist of responses to questions, regarding the adequacy of the program, the work performance of the students, and related aspects. The results generally indicate that effective training was provided for both the entry-level and experienced students. The program provided the tools necessary in traffic engineering work, and increased job awareness and interest.
