Abstract : Three preceding reports presented the effects of shortening training time in Avionics Fundamentals and Aviation Electronics Technician R (Radar) training upon the final comprehensive examination in these courses and upon performance in a subsequent equipment course. This report compares on-the-job performance of graduates from the four groups receiving differing lengths of training. The results indicated that shortening training time did affect supervisors' ratings of fleet performance for groups matched on the basis of grades made in a short course taken prior to training in aviation electronics.
