Abstract:

Currently, there is no in-residence technical training course for Supply warehousemen, AFSC 645X1. Therefore, base level supervisors and trainers are responsible to provide the initial technical training for direct duty assigned airmen in the 645X1 AFSC. Given the absence of a formal technical training course, most base level supply squadrons use the 64531 Career Developement Course text to train their direct duty assigned warehousemen. The purpose of this study was to conduct an experiment which compares the effectiveness of the Computer-Based Training CBT computer program with the commonly used text training, using a CBT module which was developed by the new supply CBT development team, located at Lowry, AFB, CO. The results of this theses have shown that when used properly, CBT can increase the ability of trainees to perform the tasks for which they are trained, and reduce total training time. This research directly supports the Air Forces continued use of CBT for the initial training of supply warehousemen, and further suggests that CBT may be a suitable technique for other Air Force training needs.
