Methods for Identifying On-the-Job Training Content When Surrogate Jobs are Used for Training.
Trexler, Robert C.; Butler, Patrick J.
Research into problems associated with job training programs resulted in a method for defining on-the-job training where a substance organization must serve as the training base for the organization in which the trainee ultimately will serve. The method involves determining the tasks required by the jobs men do in the target organization and determining which job positions in the training organization have the same tasks. The analytical procedures involved in this research permit identification of the best job position within the training organization which can be used as the OJT training position. Three OJT program models were developed, each based upon different assumptions regarding the program structure. In addition, a general method for utilizing the data to develop different programs, responsive to other assumptions and constraints, was developed. (Author)
