The research evaluates aural programmed instruction for Damage Control DC Central sound powered telephone talkers as a means of promoting adaption to student differences in the shipboard environment. The DC Central sound powered telephone talker is the only link between a shipboard emergency and the Damage Control Assistant DCA, who must deal with the emergency. There were no qualified DC Control talkers on the vessel under study when this research began. All students on the ship qualified using the program. Additionally, 60 students fresh from recruit training received the program their improvement was statistically significant. It is recommended that all sound powered telephone talker training be done aboard ship using auralverbal programmed instruction.
