The Air Force recently approved the purchase of 1500 Cromemco microcomputers. After approximately 400 were installed, various agencies realized that they needed to develop an on-going program to keep their people trained on the machines. However, additional personnel were not authorized to set up a training program. A survey of microcomputer focal points revealed that a Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) package that taught Beginner's All Purpose Instruction Code (BASIC), would be a good start in developing a training program that required no additional manpower. The author developed a CAI package to satisfy this need. The CAI code was written so that it would conform to Air Force CAI standards, and run on a variety of microcomputers. It was meant to provide sufficient instruction to transform a non-programmer into a programmer competent enough to write mission related programs. It consists of 30 programs, including six lessons (each with two parts), six tests, several homework problems, and a training report maker. (Author).
