A systems analysis of the Marine Corps' organizational aviation maintenance training program was conducted. A survey, using a research interview and questionnaire, covered a total of ten marine squadrons in two of the three active Marine Aircraft Wings to identify the existing state of individual aviation maintenance training that is currently performed at the squadron level. Responses were analyzed with appropriate nonparametric tests, aggregated, and compared to common elements of the individual training programs from the other services. Conclusions identified the existing state of aviation maintenance training relative to an emphasis on unit training. It was recommended that a serious review of individual training be conducted and, that modifications to positive programs of the other services be considered as possible improvements to the current Marine Corps individual training program.
