Abstract : The development, feasibility, value and implementation of the Test Equipment Trainer-Evaluator Check List for Sonarmen are discussed. This trainer-evaluator is designed to identify sonarman training needs and to provide a means of immediate corrective training. It is administered by a sonar supervisor while a sonarman is performing five of the regular POMSEE checks on shipboard sonar sets, and its results indicate to both the supervisor and the trainee specific performance weaknesses and training needs. This check list is a pilot instrument. Although it is intended only for sonarmen, similar check lists, developed specifically for other electronic ratings, would be feasible and valuable for shipboard training. (Author)
