Two thousand seventeen has just begun, but it’s already shap-ing up to be a big year for Specialized English Training (SET) curriculum. We are proud to announce four new modules that are going into validation this quarter alone:
- M202, English Skills for Technical Reading. Topics in-clude How to Read a Technical Manual, Text Struc-tures & Signal Words, Interpreting Visual Infor-
mation, and Understanding Procedures & Sequenced Instructions.
- M203, English Skills for Risk Management and Safety. Topics include Introduction to Risk Management & Safety, On-Duty Safety, Workplace Hazards, Off-Duty Safety, and World Safety Issues.
- M501, English Skills for Electronics 1: Basic Electrici-ty. Topics include Electricity Essentials; Circuits, Conduits & Currents; Tools of the Trade; Types of Energy; Communicating for Clarity; and Mishaps & Incident Reports.
- M901, English Skills for Munitions. Topics includes Small-Caliber Ammunition, Grenades & Pyrotech-nics; Projectiles; Bombs, Submunitions & Mines; and Rockets & Missiles.
All four of these modules were developed under the new standards for SET curriculum. They are designed to be ex-tremely user-friendly for instructors and students alike.
To kick off the validation for these new modules, the SET Curriculum staff will be presenting a detailed briefing to SET instructors and supervisors very soon. We’ll use this oppor-tunity to explain the design of the new modules and to de-scribe future projects.
In the meantime, please see your supervisor if you are inter-ested in participating in the validation for any of these new modules.
