Abstract:

This study performs a cost-benefit analysis of the Job-Oriented Basic Skills JOBS remedial training program. The baseline case against which it is compared is the normal progression of A -school-qualified recruits into the fleet. Three measures of cost effectiveness are employed in each case the two programs achieve similar results for a similar cost. It is recommended that the JOBS program be continued as a contingency in the event that certain ratings experience shortfalls of high-quality personnel in the future.
