Abstract : The research was conducted by defining factors which relate the output of Class 'C' Welding School, San Diego, to the under strength level of the fleet welding force. The sample used for the descriptive statistics was 100 per cent of the enrollees matriculating during Calendar Year 1966. The areas of investigation were attenuation of enrollment, rates of attrition, policies of promotion, and loss of qualification. Salient determinants were identified, and specific areas of investigation were outlined. The data stimulated the recommendation of corrective steps, but the implementation of other corrective measures must await decisions concerning the adoption of a new course structure. (Author)
