Title: Instrument and control technician curriculum planning guide. Final report

The Instrumentation and Control Technician (ICT) Curriculum Planning Guide is one of three such guides developed as part of project RP 1266-6, Educational Research in Solid-Fuel Technology. The first phase of this project included a needs assessment survey to determine the number of entry-level employees required as Instrumentation and Control Technicians. The need for 6000 technicians over the next decade warrants the development of a specialized ICT curriculum. A detailed task inventory of the skills and knowledge used by Instrumentation and Control Technicians in the safe and efficient performance of their jobs has been completed. The task inventory forms the basis for the model two-year (six-quarter) curriculum presented in this document. Course and module outlines are included which have been formulated to provide students with entry-level skills and the background necessary for further advancement.
