Abstract:

The Armys Air Traffic Control ATC Radar Controller Course MOS 93J10 was evaluated to determine the training programs effectiveness in terms of graduate on-the-job performance A two phase methodology was used. In phase one, questionnaires were mailed to a six month sample of graduates and their unit commanders. Task specific ratings of training adequacy were obtained. Analysis of these data yielded fourteen tasks that were suspected of having training problems. The second phase subjected the fourteen tasks to indepth analysis. Field interviews regarding the tasks were conducted with recent graduates and their immediate supervisors. Findings from this phase confirmed problems in nine task areas. Undertraining was identified as a problem in assembly and disassembly of the tactical landing control central, and the tactical interrogator set. Electric shock first aid and NBC decontamination were also found to be undertrained. Two NBC tasks dealing with chemical environment mask-to-mouth resusitation were cited due to nonperformance in the field. Limited performance of special VFR clearance, beacon code, and manual approach control tasks challenged the practicality of resident school instruction in these areas.
