Be sure that a reference library is maintained.
Not all standards pertain to the development of your
personnel. Equipment standards fall into this category.
Equipment standards, or operational parameters, are
standards that are set for individual equipments to be
sure they operate at maximum performance. These
standards may be determined by the equipments
manufacturer, the Navys planned maintenance system
(PMS), or other authority.
An equipment standard for a radar maybe stated as:
Transmitter Frequency: 9375 + 30MHz
This standard gives the operational parameters
within which this specific radar transmitter should
operate. If the transmitter were to begin operating
outside the prescribed standards you would need to
perform corrective maintenance.
In chapter 3 of this training manual, we will discuss
how you should use standards in your division training
STUDYING YOUR TECHNICAL
As a supervisor, you have three major
responsibilities concerning technical materials. First, be
sure they are available. Your shop cannot operate
properly or professionally without having the necessary
technical materials. Second, keep your technical
materials up to date. Out-of-date technical materials, in
addition to causing inconveniences, may result in harm
to equipment or personnel. Third, require your
subordinates to use their technical materials, both on the
job and to prepare for advancement.
Observing your responsibilities toward technical
materials will not just make you a better professional. It
will also demonstrate to your subordinates proper
professional and supervisory attitudes.
In chapter 2 of this manual, we will discuss more on
the care and use of technical materials.
SOURCES OF INFORMATION
You and your subordinates should know which
references to consult for detailed, authoritative,
up-to-date information on all subjects related to both the
naval requirements and the Electronics Technician
occupational standards. Most of the publications
discussed here are subject to change or revision from
time to time-some at regular intervals, others as the need
arises. When using any publication that is kept current
by changes, be sure you have a copy in which all official
changes have been entered. Official publications and
directives carry abbreviations and numbers that identify
the source and subject matter of each document. For
instance, the identification number for this training
manual is NAVEDTRA 12410. The term NAVEDTRA
means it is published by the Chief of Naval Education
Some of the NAVEDTRA and NAVPERS pub-
lications described here are essential to personnel
learning to perform the duties of their rating or seeking
advancement. The others, although not essential, are
The following publications and nonresident
training courses are usually required for
Training manuals (TRAMANs). Most training
manuals have two purposes. First, they are written to
help personnel perform the duties of their rating.
Second, they may be used to help personnel study for
advancement. Some courses are general in nature and
are intended for use by more than one rating. Others,
such as this TRAMAN, are specific to a particular
rating, The courses and publications appropriate to ETs
are as follows.
These TRAMANs are specially prepared to present
information based on the naval standards:
Basic Military Requirements, NAVEDTRA
Miltiary Requirements for Petty Officer Third
Class, NAVEDTRA 12044
