Abstract : This research paper examines the extent of education and training on microcomputers in the military services and in industry. It focuses primarily on training within the Air Force, but also surveys the Army and civilian industry. The author weaves his own experiences with Inspector General and Air Force major command reports, to depict a need for increased training in that service. Similarly, he finds structured microcomputer training needed in the Army and in industry. He concludes with recommendations to achieve greater productivity from microcomputers; the chief recommendation is to fund and staff a cadre of computer experts on each installation to train, maintain, and manage computer users and assets.
