A survey of Pensacola Naval Air Station's Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) training programs focused on kinds of training, identification of participants, and evaluation of results.

The types of training concerned: (1) race relations, focusing on military members; (2) skill improvement for EEO personnel; and (3) orientation courses on legal and policy aspects of EEO programs. Records were not maintained to systematically show the training received or needed. From records reviewed of 11 of 35 EEO principals, it was found that 5 had received no training and 6 received training ranging from 3 to 90 hours per person. In spite of requirements, records showed that 6 out of 10 managerial level employees reviewed had not received EEO training. Also, requirements for evaluation results of training programs were not met. Because of failure to maintain up-to-date records and to perform evaluations, results of the program could not be determined.
