The author then provides information about the Career Development and Occupational Studies (CDOS) learning standards, which help meet the needs of a wide range of adult learners in terms of educational and employment-related gains. The CDOS standards are: Career Development; Integrated Learning; Universal Foundation Skills and Career Majors. Links to additional, related resources are provided for further information.
