Most of the nation's 1,300 community colleges now provide some form of CBITS in addition to their other course offerings.
As a result, the CBITS field has become a bull market for postsecondary vocational education instructors.
The customized courses they teach are a significant source of revenue for some public schools (mainly those that operate their CBITS divisions as businesses) such as Calhoun Community College in Decatur, Ala.
Many other schools, however, run their CBITS operations on a cost-recovery basis.
The CBITS courses that are in high demand nationwide include information technology, basic workplace skills, customer service skills, diversity awareness, quality standards certification (such as ISO 9000), compliance certification (such as OSHA), technical and skilled trades (such as welding, hydraulics and pneumatics) and Zenger-Miller leadership training.
However, the specific needs of local industry are paramount in establishing any CBITS curriculum.
CBITS teaching demands special qualities because the CBITS environment is often different--more exclusively customer-focused--from that of a typical community college class.
