Abstract : The purpose of this research was to determine the Work Requirements of entry level personnel in the aviation fields of avionics and structures/hydraulics as part of a Chief of Naval Operations program to reduce the training time of entry level personnel and, at the same time, tailor this training more closely to the Work Requirements that entry level personnel will be expected to fulfill at their first duty stations. The approach involved a Navy-wide survey of aviation activities during which 3097 questionnaires were administered to entry level personnel and 436 questionnaires to their supervisors. The conclusions reached indicated that a revised fundamentals training program, followed by a carefully tailored supplementary training program was feasible and desirable. Certain other recommendations concerning the value of current service ratings were also made. (Author)
