Abstract: Over the last ten years the 3M company has developed a program for the integration of technical development into the career of every technical employee. This program has made use of self-study courses using interactive video disk and computer-based training, as well as more conventional techniques. IVD and CBT have proved particularly suitable for employees with heavy travel schedules and those who dislike conventional classroom situations.

Keywords: individualised instruction; self-study; computer-based training; CBT; continuing engineering education; continuing education; 3M; technical development; employee development; interactive video disks.
