This collection of articles designed to provide a world perspective on competency based education and training (CBET) can be regarded as paralleling the globalising forces which are currently shaping the economic and employment conditions to which CBET is said to be a response. The joint editors, Arguelles - a Mexican government official responsible for commercial and industrial development - and Gonczi - Dean of the increasingly influential University of Technology in Sydney which was involved in Mexican and Central American developments in this sphere - have gathered together a range of informative and illuminating studies of the growth of CBET throughout the world.
