Abstract : A survey was made of fleet-to-school training feedback in electronics maintenance. The survey was conducted aboard 35 ships and 8 shore activities in the San Diego area. At present there seems to be only sporadic feedback of electronics maintenance information from the fleet back to the schools responsible for training electronics technicians. Most existing electronics maintenance data gathering forms tend to be administrative or hardware rather than training oriented, and to be used for purposes other than improving training curricula. Fleet personnel expressed a willingness to provide training feedback data, but they also expressed a desire for minimum interference with on-the-job maintenance duties. Fleet technicians have considerable difficulty in maintaining the MK 10 IFF system. Many of the difficulties appear to result from a lack of understanding of the overall interrelation and functions of the separate electronic equipments that make up the MK 10 IFF system, and from inability to set up and properly use the special equipment (AN/UPM-70 or AN/UPM-99) that is required for testing the system. The structured interview technique, when based upon a thorough job analysis, appears to be a highly satisfactory way of providing fleet-to-school training feedback. (Author)
