Training for Progress.
Training for Progress, v7 n3 1968
Any new product or system demands that both user and producer adapt. The impact of technological change on people and training is illustrated by the introduction of color television in France, Germany, and England. Training was necessary at several levels before the mass production of color television sets could begin. The production and engineering staffs at the television stations received a course designed to familiarize them with the new equipment and techniques. A series of dry runs tested the practical application of their training. Some job categories needed redefinition. The technician who repaired and installed the set was also helped to upgrade his skills. New information and techniques were taught after the aptitude and skill levels of those technicians who wanted to branch out into the new field were assessed. The process of adapting to color television thus required systematic training rather than the more usual gradual upgrading of skills. (JY)
