Abstract

The fluid power systems equipment industry has shown a 117 percent growth from 1957 to 1968.

This impressive growth rate is critically affected by a shortage of competently trained workers.

The needs of selected Utah industries for trained personnel in fluid power were studied, and the results were projected from the sample to the state of Utah.

The skill levels most in demand were skilled, two-year technician, and semi-skilled.

Industries indicated that training to meet their needs could be conducted by on-the-job training, inplant schools, special schools, adult education programs, vocational high school programs, tow-year vocational school programs, two-year university programs, and technical institute programs.

Based on the recommendations of Utah industries for training needed and using the Fluid Power Society curriculum as a substructure, recommendations for fluid power instructions in Utah were made.
