scope:

1.1 This document provides guidelines for basic workforce education in the infrastructure topics related to nanotechnology to be taught at an undergraduate college level. This education should be broad to prepare an individual to work within one of the many areas in nanotechnology research, development, or manufacturing. The individual so educated may be involved in material handling, manufacture, distribution, storage, use, or disposal of nanoscale materials.

1.2 This guide may be used to develop or evaluate an education program for the infrastructure used in the nanotechnology field. This guide provides listings of key topics that should be covered in a nanotechnology education program on this subject, but it does not provide specific course material to be used in such a program. This approach is taken in order to allow workforce education entities to ensure their programs cover the required material while also enabling these institutions to tailor their programs to meet the needs of their local employers.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the methods and concepts pertaining to the infrastructure for nanotechnology. It may not cover knowledge and skill objectives applicable to local conditions or required by local regulations.
