77 The departmental training needs assessment addresses the following questions: • What training is needed and why? Training might be needed to satisfy mandated training, or to address gaps identified between expected performance and actual performance. • Who needs it? Identify specific employee groups and differentiate between initial and recurrent training. • How will it be delivered? Consider in-house versus contract, instructor-led, or student-led. • What will the results be? Consider desired outcomes. Consider goals of training effort. Once a need for training at the department level is recognized, it is helpful to conduct a training needs assessment of each employee. The individual training needs assessment addresses the following questions: • What skills should employees have and to what degree should employees possess these skills? Performance gaps will be identified. • How will training be delivered? Consider in-house versus contract, instructor-led, or student-led. • What will the results be? Consider desired outcomes. Consider goals of training effort. A P P E N D I X D Training Needs Assessment

Managers of airports of all sizes face a perennial dilemma: how to efficiently train operations personnel to meet Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 139 requirements and ensure a safe and secure airport environment.

The TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program's ACRP Synthesis 112: Airport Operations Training at Small Airports focuses on airport operations employees and aims to better understand current training methods and programs in use by small airports in the United States (including nonhub, nonprimary commercial service, reliever, and general aviation) to initially and recurrently train airport operations employees.

Supplemental material to the report includes several appendices, including Appendix H, Appendix I, Appendix J, Appendix K, and Appendix L.
