This evaluation was conducted to determine the ability of apprentces grduated from Air Training Comand Course Nr ABR42330, Aircraft and Missile Electrical Repairmn, to perform the duties of their specialty. The performance of each apprentice was evaluated for a 12-week period during his first duty assignment. It was determined that 3 to 5 mo would be required for apprentices to develop job proficiency in theirASSIGNMENTS. Intensive on-the-job training is necessary because of inadequate formal training in system trouble analysis. This deficiency was particularly evident in the areas of multiple alternator and generator power circuits. The present training gives greater emphasis to inspection procedures and to the internal construction and circuits of components than the job requires. The course should be revised to eliminate this training and place emphasis on system functioning and trouble analysis. It is desirable that apprentices acquire greater proficiency in the basic manul techniques, includng terminal wire replacement, wire splicing and tying, soldering, and safteying. Author
