Abstract:

Sixteen airmen with no background in electronics were given four weeks of job-oriented training and then observed as they performed maintenance while using fully proceduralized job performance aids FPJPAs. Half of the airmen had the high aptitude usually required for training in electronics. The other half had significantly lower aptitudes. There is some evidence that most of the airmen were below average in reading ability. This effort had two purposes. One was to provide interested military and civilian personnel a preview of the maintenance performance of minimally trained airmen using FPJPAs. Another was to shake-down or debug the FPJPAs and the matching training program prior to a major experimental comparison of alternative types of technical data and training for maintenance.
