This thesis was written as part of a process to secure funds for developing a "Preparatory Vocational Education" training academy for entry-level "Irrigation Technicians." Research revealed that funding for vocational program development was being awarded to "All-inclusive" or academy-style programs. These programs provide instruction necessary for students with zero experience to compete as entry-level journeymen. This project is based on a partial proposal draft for a U.S. Department of Labor Grant.
