Centralized Instructor Training for Naval Technical Training. TAEG Report No. 38.
Papetti, Clarence J.; And Others
This report identifies and discusses the factors to be considered in determining the feasibility of the centralization, or consolidation, of the instructor training schools under the administration or curriculum control of the Chief of Naval Technical Training (CNTECHTRA). The study considers the alternative options of reducing the present six school sites to (1) a single school or academy, (2) two schools, or (3) three schools. The investigation is divided into two parts: The first explores the qualitative factors, identifying and evaluating the noncost variables relative to the centralization decision, and the second considers economic (cost) factors. The report provides a "present cost" model, based upon resource expenditures for facilities, transportation, labor, and equipment. (Survey populations for qualitative study included 85 administrators, supervisors, and selected senior instructors assigned to the present CNTECHTRA instructor training schools. The comparison group of 24 persons was composed of supervisory and administrative personnel at the Navy technical training schools at San Diego. Quantitative questionnaires were also mailed to the six instructor training sites.) The qualitative analysis identifies 45 variables associated with instructor school functions and eight associated with location factors. It incorporates a summary of comments upon the various aspects of the centralization concept. Also included are summaries of requirements for the use of new construction or modified existing structures for centralization. (Author/LAS)
