Abstract : This evaluation of 2-weeks duration and 5 apprentices was conducted to determine the ability of apprentices graduated from Air Training Command Course No. ABR90631, Medical Materiel Specialist, to perform the duties of their specialty. Apprentices were trained in manual supply procedures. In assignments using this type of supply procedure, they were able to perform satisfactorily with a minimum of on-the-job training. Supervisors' estimates of 5-skill-level development in approximately 6 months were based on the number of different supply sections with which the apprentice must become familiar rather than any difficulty in training for the work of the section. Apprentices working in a mechanized supply unit required approximately two weeks to become oriented with the different procedures and forms. Supervisors foresaw n problem in training, as it was evident that the apprentices had developed an adequate knowledge of basic supply principles and procedures during their training. Inclusion of a Job Training Standard requirement for training in this area is recommended, with subsequent inclusion in the course. The medical Materiel Specialist Course is in the process of being revised to include instruction in mechanized supply procedures. (Author)
