Recent popular opinion describes today's new recruit as less intelligent than those recruited before the advent of the all-volunteer fore (AVF). This is not the case. The status of literacy in the navy has remained almost constant with a slight improvement since the AVF. The primary concern over the literacy of the sailor is the rapid increase in the complexity and technology of the maintenance requirements. As this complexity and technology continues to escalate, the need for optimal training increases. This thesis reviews current training procedures and learning theory which might be applicable. It then suggests modifications of current training practice to improve the capabilities of the aircraft maintenance technician.
