Opportunities in metalworking :a survey of metal shops served by the Yuba Community College District, Marysville, California.

Discovery of career fields in metalworking by the student is one of the primary goals of vocational-technical education at the community college. Through the offering of specially selected metal- working courses, the student is given the opportunity to explore many career areas and develop special interests and skills in the areas of his choice. In order for a community college to provide career educa- tion which is abreast of current industrial trends, a study of occupa- tional opportunities in metalworking is needed to ensure that the student *s training will qualify him for employment in the metal- working field.
