Abstract : In the event that anticipated shortfalls in the recruitment of qualified airmen for certain electronic specialties materializes, data on existing job requirements in terms of electronic aptitude requirements should provide the basis for any selective lowering of the minimum AFS standards. This report considers the relative electronics aptitude requirements for all AFSCs having a specified minimum AQE-EI. Ranked difficulty of first-term airmen jobs in these specialties, in terms of electronics aptitude required, were obtained from 1,323 NCO supervisors and compared with the existing requirements. The rankings were shown to be highly stable and reliable, and the validity of the experimental procedures is supported by the data. Sequential actions for lowering the minimum electronics aptitude requirements together with a realignment of existing AFSC requirements are suggested. (Author)
