Abstract:

In January 1964, the Navy Training Research Laboratory NTRL was assigned responsibility for developing, conducting and evaluating an experimental Electronics Technician ET training program. The general goals of this program were 1 To train men whose aptitudes were lower than those typically qualified for ET A School, 2 to train them in a shorter period of time, and 3 to train them so that their skills would be more immediately useful on the job. This report describes an evaluation of the graduates from the first two classes of the experimental ET training course after they had served six months in the fleet. Evaluation instruments included actual performance tests, rating scales, interviews, proficiency rankings, and written tests. The results of the evaluation indicated that the experimentally trained ETs were performing satisfactorily in the fleet with overall proficiency not significantly different from that of a comparison sample of concurrently trained ET A School graduates.
