This paper describes an industrial training program designed to bring continuing engineering educational programs to several thousand engineers, distributed in plants over a wide geographical area, on a flexible time schedule, using a practicing engineer's time effectively and efficiently, while utilizing good teaching and learning techniques. Using video tape as the teaching media and supplementing this with textbooks, especially developed studying guide materials, visual aids designed for TV presentations, and an associate instructor at the plant location to act in a resource capacity, a successful engineering personnel educational program has been developed economically that can be used at any plant location. The techniques described could be utilized by other industries to bring quality engineering updating programs to the majority of their engineers and by universities to bring graduate-level programs to locations distant from the campus at a time convenient to the engineers involved.
