NET Gain No. 12: Job Training Resources (September 1997)

This installment of "Net Gain" focuses on job training resources. Several of the following Web sites also provide many useful links. As you surf, you'll find information about very specific job training courses and subjects, as well as contact information. Remember you can refer to previous "NET Gain" columns on the Internet via NCRVE's Web site.

ASTD http://www.astd.org

This Web site from the American Society for Training and Development offers helpful information about the organization and includes a great directory of links to other sites related to job training. The site also profiles a "Surf Site of the Week."

Training Net http://www.trainingnet.com

Look here for a listing of more than 2,200 training resources, grouped into 151 categories such as "coaching" and "presentation skills." The site also offers a searchable calendar and a free job finding feature.

The Training SuperSite http://www.trainingsupersite.com

The presentation of this site is a bit bewildering, but it offers a wealth of information. The data is presented around a virtual cityscape and it isn't always clear what is located where. Its best feature probably is the online access to Training magazine, which also is available via http://www.lakewoodpub.com

Training and Seminar Locations http://www.tasl.com

This site is modest in scope but has useful access to scheduled and on demand training for businesses.

The TCM Training and Development Resource Center http://www.tcm.com/trdev

The organization of this site is clear, so surfing it is easy. The site includes links to more than 130 noncommercial and 40 commercial Internet sites related to job training. It also includes newsgroups and electronic mailing lists.

Penn State's TRDEV-L http://train.ed.psu.edu/trdev-l

Surfers can subscribe to daily discussion lists about job training at this Web site. There also is a virtual gallery of more than 100 Web links.

The US Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration http://www.doleta.gov

This extensive site lists related Web sites and a calendar of events. It also includes a link to the Training Technology Resource Center, which is sponsored by the Labor Department. The TTRC links to many sites geared to skills standards and school-to-work.

This "NET Gain" was compiled by Peter Seidman and David Carlson (NCRVE, University of California at Berkeley). An online archive of columns is available on the NCRVE World Wide Web server http://ncrve.berkeley.edu/NetGain Readers are encouraged to let the authors know about any changes in the resources listed, as well as about others they find useful.
