Abstract : For a number of years, the high cost of training first-term aviation personnel has been a matter of increasing concern to the Chief of Naval Operations. Some evidence exists that the enlisted work effort at the entry-level in the avionics and mechanical maintenance fields does not require extensive prior technical training. To further test this proposition, an experimental reduction of technical training was authorized by CNO (OP-56) for a group of entry-level personnel enrolled in courses leading to their designation as ATN, ATR, AQB, AQF, AX, AE, AMH, and AMS. This reduction consisted of the elimination of the specific equipment course portions of the 'A' schools of these ratings. The performance of the experimental group of fundamentals graduates (FGs) in their Fleet billets, thus, would constitute a test of the feasibility of reducing the initial technical training of entry-level personnel.
