REVISION OF NHTSA CURRICULUM PACKAGES

Sixteen NHTSA in-print curriculum packages were analyzed, and three were selected for revision: highway traffic records course, traffic court judge workshop and emergency medical technician course. Selection was based primarily on value to the states in carrying out annual programs. The revision process resulted in an essentially new traffic records course; it focuses on the fundamental relationship between the traffic records system and the highway safety program and emphasizes crash data and safety program management data subsystems. The revision effort for the traffic court judge workshop essentially represented a repackaging of the original program. The revision process for the emergency medical technician course consisted primarily of an extensive technical update with added emphasis on patient assessment and reinforcement of basic emergency care procedures. A standardized three-part curriculum package was prepared for each program: a course guide for the training administrator, lesson plans for the instructor, and a study guide for the student. In addition, a set of 2x2 35mm trauma slides was prepared to aid instructors of the emergency medical technician course.
