A limited study was performed of the use of training provided through formal courses to civilian employees of the Army Material Development and Readiness Command, employees and training officials were interviewed and data were obtained to determine utilization.

DARCOM reported that 1,653 employees spent 66,500 hours in training at a cost of $1,717,000 in fiscal year 1975. Based on a sampling of 27 employees, the average utilization rate was 50 percent compared to 56 percent for the overall average of five agencies studied. The reasons given for not using training were that it did not apply to the job, hardware and time were not available, courses did not apply to some grade levels, and courses were too elementary for some employees. There was no adequate followup to the evaluations made by the employees on required evaluation forms.
