Television Equipment Repair Career Ladder. Occupational Survey Report.
Air Force Occupational Measurement Center, Lackland AFB, TX.
The report describes the results of an Air Force occupational survey of the television equipment repair career ladder. A job inventory, administered to 808 job incumbents, consisted of a background information section and a duty-task list designed to assess the relative amount of time spent on tasks performed in current jobs. The resulting summaries of tasks performed by airmen (based on information from 415 incumbents) are tabulated and analyzed according to skill level, experience level, and similarity of tasks performed. The survey results show that the television equipment repair job descriptions generally reflect an accurate picture of the tasks performed by personnel. The job structure of the career ladder presented was determined on the basis of similarity in the tasks performed by the incumbents. Computerized structure analysis produced (1) job cluster groups, (2) independent job type groups, and (3) job type groups within the clusters. Background information on personnel in each of these groups is summarized. Two recommendations for modification of training procedures based on the survey results are included. Appended is a detailed description of all reported job groups. (NTIS)
