dc.dateThe U. S. Navy, in fulfilling its mission, requires a tremendous amount of skilled manpower. A significant percentage of this population is frequently assigned outside their respective skill areas. The resulting skill deterioration incurred during these assignments affects the amount of retraining required to reestablish currency and insure fleet readiness. This study suggests potential approaches for determining skill loss as the initial step for decision-makers in specifying the degree of retraining necessary. To this end, an extensive literature and agency survey of skill retention and related topics was conducted to identify areas where further research is required. Also, two conceptual models of possible retraining systems are formulated and discussed. Finally, recommendations are submitted which have implications in the areas of Reserve training, manpower planning, and personnel management.
