Educating and Training Technicians

image of Educating and Training Technicians

This book, by a recognised authority on the subject, will be of value to all who are concerned with the education and training of all technicians. It is uncompromising in its view that the shortage of trained technicians in developing countries has retarded their pace of industrialisation, and that their future economic and social progress will depend on the quality and quantity of technicians they produce. For, in the words of LS Chandrakant: 'It is imperative for all developing countries to train and develop their own indigenous personnel as competent technicians. In the final analysis the pace and direction of the economic progress of developing countries will largely depend upon how far they solve their technician problem.'




The indispensable role and importance of technicians to a developing country cannot be over-emphasized. They are the middle-level manpower who exploit scientific and technical discovery; the people whose training and skill in industrial processes enable the material wealth of a nation to be built up. Their availability in the right numbers, at the right time, in the right place, and with the right balance of technical knowledge and practical skills, determines the pace and direction of industrial innovation and economic and social development.
