Previous research concerning aircraft maintenance officer training focused on the content of the training curriculum of the Aircraft Maintenance and Munitions Officers Course AMMOC. Conversely, this study sought improvement in aircraft maintenance officer training by evaluating the guidance and support provided to AMMOC. Two methods were employed for identifying such opportunities. First, a descriptive model of the training system supporting AMMOC was developed and analyzed. Second, feedback was solicited from AMMOC instructors through the use of a two-round Delphi. The Delphi was employed to develop a consensus among the instructors regarding what improvement opportunities existed and potential means for taking advantage of these opportunities. Findings indicate that AMMOC may be improved by facilitating better communication between AMMOC, its customers, and other organizations empowering AMMOC instructors with more control over the course training standard CTS, student scheduling, and customer feedback and providing instructors more time for course development by assessing and satisfying AMMOCs manpower requirements and refining training development and manning policies.
