The purpose of this study is to determine the pre-employment and post-employment training that will be needed now and in the future in Custer County, Montana. The population of this area is approximately 12,174 according to the latest census figure (See Appendix, page 50). All previous reading and discussions have indicated that immediate action must be taken to alleviate many of the circumstances leading to unemployment. The prime concern is not with the local economic situation, which tends to fluctuate, but rather with those conditions which are perpetual in nature due to lack of proper academic and vocational learnings. Therefore, some of the specific problems to be investigated are: 1. To determine the competencies, knowledges, and skills needed for successful work in distributive occupations. 2. To determine to what degree attitudes, aptitudes, and physical attributes apply to successful employment. 3. To determine to what degree the employees believe they could compete when entering a new area with a large work force if additional instruction offerings were available. 4. To determine how the distributive education departments at Custer County High School and Miles Community College can work together to establish a plan, integrate the plan and accomplish the desired objectives.
