Abstract:

This evaluation was conducted to determine the ability of personnel trained in the ATC Airborne Electronic Navigation Equipment Repairman Course ABR30131 to perform the duties of their specialty. Data were obtained from a 12-week performance evaluation of 19 apprentices assigned to operational units at Shaw, Charleston, and Little Rock Air Force Bases. Apprentices were found to have a good backgound knowledge of electronics and the principles employed in representative equipment, and to be capable of developing 5-skill maintenance proficiency with six to nine months job experience. Training on solid-state circuits is inadequate for job requirements. Other desirable changes in training include higher proficiencies for use of the dual-trace oscilloscope and vacuum tube voltmeter and familiarization with a wider variety of test equipment, also greater emphasis on block diagram analysis for line troubleshooting and on visual inspections for shop trouble analysis. As the course now meets the JTS proficiency requirements for all of these items except knowledge of transistorized equipment, revision of the Job Training Standard to justify additional training is recommended.
