Abstract: Prepared by Canadian, Chinese Taipei, and Thai educational agencies and based on surveys of Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation member nations, this report provides descriptions of 52 exemplary industrial technology training models in Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, the People's Republic of China, Singapore, Thailand, and the United States. Following background on the survey, common program features are reviewed, such as hands-on training activities, replication of industrial conditions, retraining workers in their regular jobs, involvement of the private sector, and on-site training. Descriptions are then provided for 52 programs, including information on program objectives, delivery, specialized resources, unique elements and benefits, the duration of training, the role of partners, and testimonials from local users or government officials. A program contact, including telephone number is also provided. Sample models described include the Centre for Temperate Agri-Food Training, offered by North-West Institute of Technical and Further Education in Australia, which trains approximately 1,000 students in food production and processing and includes articulation with the University of Tasmania; Aircraft Maintenance Technician Training at Maktab Teknik Sultan Saiful Rijal in Brunei which has close cooperation with the national Air Force and airline; and the Workers' Institute of Technology in Malaysia, developed and maintained by trade unionists and offering three-year technical diplomas and two-year certificates.
