Self-Paced Advanced Individual Training (AIT) and Duty Assignment Procedures.
Hunter, Harold; Wagner, Harold
A study was made to (a) describe how self-paced Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) training affects the Army assignment system; (b) identify ways the existing assignment system can accommodate individualized instruction; and (c) suggest modifications to the assignment system to provide better integration of self-paced training with assignment procedures. Information on self-paced systems in the Army, Navy, and Air Force and on assignment policies and procedures at the Department of the Army and at local training bases was collected, through interviews, correspondence, and examination of relevant documents. Relationships between self-paced systems and the assignment system were analyzed to identify points of accommodation. (Three appendixes are included.) (Author)
