Abstract : A study was made of specific subject areas of the Air Controlman (AC) rating. Particular attention was devoted to such subjects as the commonality of NEC tasks, utilization of equipment, performance of women in the rating, and training and curricula modification. Tasks performed by different groups of Acs were compared to determine the areas of overlap and similarity. Conclusions were made that work performance of ACs was functionally oriented without specific regard to special training received or NECs awarded. 'Core' training and specific 'phase' training were recommended for intermediate and advanced type radar courses on a 'modular' basis, as dictated by the needs of the fleet. More 'personalization' and 'individualization' were recommended for improving training curricula. (Author)
