A Preliminary Investigation into Shipboard Training Problems. Final Report.
Brock, John F.
A preliminary investigation into applying the NPTRL course design procedure to a ship's repair party training program is reported. A training system was developed for repair party training which was workable and produced readily detectable improvements. The procedure proved adaptable to shipboard conditions. Most problems of shipboard training reduce to management problems, rather than the actual conduct of training. There is tentative evidence that smaller repair parties, with personnel cross-trained in two or more discreet jobs, would be more efficient. Further research in the shipboard training area is suggested. (Author)
