Paper Abstract

Surveys conducted in several regions of the country indicate a current shortage of technicians who are well trained in lasers and electro-optics; this shortage is expected to increase significantly by 1980. Needs exist in these regions for educational programs at schools and in employer facilities for preparing new employees and retraining existing employees. A government sponsored program has developed curricula and instructional materials which are available and can be adapted into a variety of learning environments. Six schools are currently teaching Laser Electro-Optics Technology and twelve more anticipate programs beginning this fall or next year. Several employers have adopted the instructional materials for use in "in-house" training programs.
