INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION CAREERS-A GUIDE FOR DEVELOPMENT OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

THE REPORT SPELLS OUT THE EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND CRITERIA IN THE OVERALL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS FIELD. THE TRANSPORTATION PROGRAM GUIDELINES OFFER THE EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITY AN OPPORTUNITY TO HELP RENEW OR DEVELOP CAREERS IN THE CHANGING TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS PROFESSIONS, AND FOR CAREER MOBILITY TO THOSE ALREADY EMPLOYED IN TRANSPORTATION. THE CURRICULAR GUIDELINES ARE INTERDISCIPLINARY AND MULTIDISCIPLINARY, EMBRACING THE TRANSPORTATION ENVIRONMENT OF DEVELOPMENT, OPERATION AND MANAGEMENT. THE SUGGESTED PROGRAMS ARE DIVIDED INTO THREE LEVELS: THE 'BEGINNING-ENTRY LEVEL'(I); THE 'INTERMEDIATE JOB LEVEL' (II); AND THE 'SEMI-PROFESSIONAL LEVEL' (III). EACH CORE PROGRAM HAS BEEN MADE FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO CONSTRUCT INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS OR MODULES OF EDUCATIONAL ELEMENTS OF SPECIFIC SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE AND CONCEPTS, WHILE AT THE SAME TIME ORIENTED TOWARD CAREER OR JOB PREPARATION. THE CORE GUIDELINES, FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF CURRICULA IN INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION CAREER EDUCATION, ARE APPLICABLE TO SECONDARY, COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND TECHNICAL SCHOOL LEVELS. /AUTHOR/
