in making up the curriculum so that a high degree of flexibility, desirable in an extension course, is maintained.

Each student of DeForestis Training, Inc., who elects to study at home receives the following major training advantages: (1) clearly written lessons with handy fold-out diagram sheets which enable the student to have the correct illustration constantly beside the text for page after page; (2) actual motion pictures right in his own room through the loan of a 16 mm. projector and many reels of film illustrating important fundamentals. The projector, a De Vry model, has been made available as the result of an afiiliation of the DeVry Corporation with DeForestis Training, Inc. A pioneer in visual training, D.T.I. is the only educational institution of its type to supply motion pictures to students in their own homeseno matter where they live; and (3) home laboratory equipment featuring electronic parts to be mounted on individual bases with spring clip terminals, which permit fasts er experimenting. Each student keeps all of the home laboratory parts sent him and builds a six-tube Superheterodyne receiver and valuable test equipment as part of his experiments.

The home training program usually requires from ten to fifteen months of spare time training to complete, a period which compares favorably with evening and other spare-time college and technical school courses. The D.T.I. training is ideally adapted to spare time effort by the utilization of an unusually effective combination of major home training aids and an up-to-date text, thoroughly modern throughout. Should a home student desire, he may come to D.T.I.,s modern Chicago Laboratory for two weeks of supplementary practical experience on commercial equipment, after the completion of the home portion of his training. This is simply an optional privilege, of course, and unnecessary for completion of the basic work.


As the inevitable hour approaches when television and moving pictures will coalesce to function as closely coordinated team in the presentation of the finest available entertainment to patrons of the theatre, the need for qualified technicians to handle the actual installation, operation, maintenance, and repair of television equipment will become acute. It is then that qualified technical training in the fundamentals of the new electronic science will pay off; and foresighted theatremen, ambitious enough to invest their time and energy in the learning of the new techniques now, will be ready to assume key positions. The thorough ground work now offered by DeForestis Training, Inc., provides a golden opportunity for management and operators who can sense the shape of things to come.
