FUNCTIONAL FUNDAMENTALS TRAINING FOR ELECTRONIC MAINTENANCE PERSONNEL
AIR FORCE AEROSPACE MEDICAL RESEARCH LAB WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB OH WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB
A majority of the experiments reported in the literature concerning functional electronic fundamentals have applied the functional principles to training for a very limited and specific area of maintenance--in some cases to only one electronic equipment. The present experiment was designed to include the fundamental tasks and concepts applicable to all of the electronic communications specialties at the time of the study. The course was organized around specially designed trainers that incorporated the desired circuits and task requirements. Considerable well spaced maintenance practice was given using common test equipment, such as, vacuum tube voltohmmeter, signal generator, and oscilloscope. The findings indicated that the traditional and experimental courses were equally successful in training high aptitude students 7, 8, and 9 stanines. The experimental course was much more successful, however, than the traditional course in training average aptitude students 4, 5, and 6 stanines. The job success of the average aptitude graduates who completed the experimental course was equivalent to that of the higher aptitude graduates.
