An approach to shipboard training was proposed that was designed to produce instructional methods that are both responsive to fleet priorities and compatible with the constraints of a shipboard environment, and a three-stage plan was developed to implement and evaluate that approach. Under the first stage of that plan, an extensive survey was conducted on board three aircraft carriers 1 to determine characteristics of present training systems 2 to assess environmental constraints and 3 to determine major problem areas where shipboard training could be applied to enhance job performance. Survey results provided a comprehensive overview of the major types of performance problems being experienced, current training systems being implemented, and implementation difficulties caused by the shipboard environment. Twenty of the major problems were selected for further evaluation by fleet representatives. As a result, main propulsion system problems were determined as most critical and selected for research attention. Author
