An Experiment in Basic Airborne Electronics Training. Part 5: Evaluation of the Revised Courses.
Baldwin, Robert O.; Johnson, Kirk A.
This is the fifth in a series on shortened versions of the Avionics Fundamentals and Aviation Electronics Technician R (Radar) Courses. The first four studies indicated that the initial revisions of the courses led to substantial savings in training time, but that the graduates from the revised courses were slightly inferior to graduates from the original courses on several criteria. It was decided that shortened versions of both courses should be implemented on an operational basis, but that these courses should incorporate certain changes that had been suggested by experience with the first revisions. These changes led to courses that were not quite as short as those produced in the first revision. It was found that students in the 8.5 week version of the Aviation Electronics Technician R (Radar) course did just as well as students in the original 10.8 week version of the course. Students in the 16 week version of the Avionics Fundamentals course were found to be slightly inferior to students in the original 19 week version. (authors/ly)
