Weed, Herman R.; And Others
The objective of the study was to develop an educational program to update Air Force scientists, engineers, senior technicians and managers of science and engineering (both military and civilian) working at Wright Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB). Needs in continuing education were assessed from data obtained from: the Office of Professional and Technical Training for 3600 engineers and scientists; a questionnaire administered to the 3600 engineers and scientists and 413 technicians; group interviews with management personnel; and personal interviews with 200 scientists and engineers. The results of the study indicated that the present level of participation in continuing education of WPAFB personnel was sizable. The major need of WPAFB was the development of a well organized in-house educational program using the capability of present staff and educational facilities. (PT)
