Abstract: The purpose of this survey was to compare and contrast homemaker training programs in fifteen community colleges in British Columbia. Program aspects examined were the types of homemaker programs offered, sequences of the classroom, laboratory and field experiences, occupational competencies and objectives, prerequisites for entry of student homemakers and instructors' perceptions of a trained homemaker.. The data were collected between January 29, 1982 and February 22, 1982. The analysis of the data showed that of the thirteen colleges conducting homemaker programs, eleven offered full-time pre-employment day programs, seven offered part-time upgrading evening programs, with one of these colleges offering a combined pre-employment program, and six colleges offered full-time and part-time upgrading day programs. There were variations in the total program hours and in the hours spent by homemaker students in classroom, laboratory and field experiences. There was not consistency in the opinions of instructors about desired competencies or characteristics of trained homemakers and the process of student selection was not standardized. In addition to the discussions of these findings, suggested recommendations are included.
