          A survey of Pensacola Naval Air Station's Equal
Employment Opportunity (EEn) training programs focused on
of training, identification of participants, and evaluationkinds
results. Findings/Conclusions: The types of training concerned:of
race relations, focusing on military members; skill improvement
for EEO personnel; and orientation courses on legal and
aspects of UCo 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
had received no training and 6 received training ranging that 5
to 90 hours per person. In spite of requirements, records from 3
that 6 out of 10 mar.ageri.l level employees reviewed had showed
received EEO training. Also, requirements for evaluation
of training programs were not met. Because of failure to results
maintain up-to-date records and to perform evaluations,
of the program could not be determined. Recommendations:results
commanding officer should: (1) implement a system to accurately
record training received; and (2) take action to devise a
for effectively evaluating EEO training to determine what method
it is having on the achievement of EEO goals. (HTW)
