Abstract : The requirments most appropriate for Ordnance electronics maintenance training and methods of analyzing electronics tasks were developed. The process included system, task, and knowledges and skills analyses, and determination of training objectives. A representative MOS, Nike Track Radar Repairman, was analyzed by these methods and theresults reflected in a 22-week experimental course; more emphasis was placed on practical maintenance procedures and certain technical aspects, and less on circuit operation theory. Graduates of the experimental course surpassed graduates of the 39-week standard course on an overall job-sample measure, and on troubleshooting the radar system and components. They ranked almost as well as field-experienced repairmen in trouble-shooting radar components, but somewhat below them in other areas tested. It was concluded that the kinds of content identified in the NICORD analysis need to be given greater emphasis in current electronics maintenance training. (Author)
