Abstract:

The study was undertaken to identify special operations SO activities performed by Air Force personnel. This information is needed for management decisions related to attendance, course schedules, and content of training courses for the USAF Special Operations School. Officer and airman job inventories were constructed to include work tasks related to psychological operations, civic actions, counterinsurgency, and unconventional warfare. These inventories were administered to all personnel identified by commands as performing SO activities. Complete returns were obtained from 404 officers and 189 airmen, most of whom reported spending only part time on SO tasks. The study includes an analysis of SO job types and ratings of the extent of need on the job of certain courses and educational topics related to SO.
