Abstract : Individualized, job-specific courses were developed for three organizational-level billets in an A-7E squadron: The TF41 power plant maintenance technician, the structures/hydraulics maintenance technician, and the plane captain. Training was oriented specifically toward the tasks that the graduate would perform in the billet during his first enlistment. Training on the more general or theoretical knowledge needed for a given task was closely integrated with training on the more specific or concrete aspects of the task, instead of being segregated into common-core courses at the beginning of the training pipelines. The courses were supported by the Navy's computer-managed instruction (CMI) system.
