The report reviews the evolution of existing national programs for air traffic controller training, estimates the number of persons requiring developmental and supplementary training, examines present controller selection and training programs, investigates performance measurement methods, considers standardization and quality control, discusses the capabilities and limitations of existing simulation devices for air traffic controller training, and identifies and compares on a cost basis developmental training alternatives. It also considers: simulators and centralized and noncentralized training, the training budget, future requirements of training, research and development for training, hiring practices, and the training load at the Federal Aviation Administration Academy. Over 200 pages of the document consist of the following appendixes: statement of work; field facility survey on training; simulation for air traffic controller training, selection of air traffic controllers; performance measurement in air traffic control; review of present training; cost analyses of air traffic controller training, FY 1974, and of alternative training methods; alternative developmental training programs; and budgetary and fiscal control training.
