Radio-Television Service Technician Training Needs of Iowa.
Dukes, Glenn F.
Iowa radio-television servicing firms were studied to determine the need for educational programs to train or upgrade service technicians. The first questionnaire was used to gather data on present and proposed employment from 355 firms (an 84.19 percent return), while the second questionnaire collected information on required knowledges and skills from 213 firms (an 80 percent return). The conclusions were: (1) Radio-television service technicians are relatively homogeneously grouped across areas within the state, (2) Four of the 18 areas studied needed additional training programs, (3) The majority of the technicians were found to be below 40 years of age and in need of additional training, and (4) A large portion of the applicants did not have adequate training. The study did not provide adequate data to make a satisfactory analysis of the skills and technical knowledge required by service technicians. (GR)
