This paper examines one element of a total spectrum of education and training activities maintained by the Research and Engineering Division of the Xerox Corporation for updating and broadening its engineering and scientific personnel. It describes several ways in which one company capitalizes on its specialists and subject matter experts as instructional talent to share knowledge with other members of the technical community, and examines how cooperation between local colleges and universities during program development has resulted in relevant training to meet their specific industrial training needs. Techniques of using company resources to provide state of the art and interdisciplinary training in a wide range of highly unique and specialized areas are explored. Administrative and operational activities necessary for successfully establishing and maintaining an in-plant education and training program are examined, the scope of classroom facilities are specified, and the benefits achieved through these in-house training techniques are enumerated.
