"In the final part of the course, the students are capable of developing their own techniques and can thus repair the equipment in minimum time. That is the objective we pursue. Besides, we familiarize them with all the documentation. The success of repairing these machines in the shortest possible time lies in the competencyof utilizing the documentation as reference material. If they have a problem in a certain area, they need to know on which microfiche to find the appropriate diagnostic routine; where to find the information required."
Several students interviewed expressed great enthusiasm for the new International Technical Education facilities. One of them who had just completed training on the complete NCR Century line, said: "This new training facility offers a great opportunity to learn fully any equipment studied due to the great quantity of equipment and educational material
available. Above all," he said, "you learn how to handle the information you receive."
Another student offered the thought that the new education center provided excellent facilities for students to gain first-hand experience in maintenance procedures. "Nevertheless," he continued, "more and more a greater degree of personal initiative, dedication and experience outside of school is needed in order to acquire the level of knowledge necessary to keep a customer's system running properly."
