Abstract:

Apprentices graduated from the guidance and control systems mechanics courses IM-99A require 2 to 3 mo of intensive training on the job before being capable of productive effort. This training inadequacy is due to insufficient time being allocated to certain instructional areas, inoperative equipment provided to conduct instruction, and the misalignment of subject materials offered in the courses to the job requirement. The effectiveness of the training is lost by emphasis on factual missile data rather than missile systems block diagram analysis. Recommendations are made that these courses be reoriented to provide a better knowledge of system layout and component identification, to eliminate unnecessary factual information, and to utilize the majority of the time available in block diagram analysis of the applicable systems, major assembly test sets, and the functional checkout set to the Job Training Standard proficiency levels indicated. The Job Training Standards for these specialties should be revised to require training to provide a working knowledge of the missile systems, the major assembly test sets, the functional checkout test set, and the service checkout equipment applicable to each Air Force specialty.
