Abstract : A followup assessment of graduates of Selective Electronics Training (SET) for Data Systems (DS) Technicians was conducted to evaluate the job capabilities and shipboard utilization of six-year obligors (6YO's) in the fleet. The assessment evidence indicates that the 6YO DS Technicians are being appropriately utilized within their specialities in the fleet, and that they are generally competent in performing normally assigned maintenance duties. A period of about six months fleet experience is required, however, before graduate technicians are considered by supervisors to be fully qualified. Despite the general level of job competence, performance evaluations reveal some specific deficiencies in troubleshooting and in the use of test equipments. Suggested training modifications could increase the immediate shipboard utility of graduate technicians and improve their proficiency levels in specific performance areas. (Author)
