dc.description.abstract The continued growth of computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tool use in industry combined with increased competition in the global market requires workers to quickly attain requisite skills and raise productivity levels to meet production demands. Retention of knowledge is a key factor in an operator's ability to transfer training into actual machine operation in a production setting. This study examines the difference in short term retention of knowledge necessary to perform basic interface operations in operators trained using a conventional training method compared to those trained using a train-to-criteria method. en_US
