Abstract

The introduction and implementation of computers in Roumanian society have been phased, following a programme which will result in a national date processing system. In order to achieve this goal electrical data processing equipment is being constructed and training programmes are being given to "selected" candidates. These training programmes include intensive courses for analyst-programmers, junior programmers, card-punch and computer operators. The psychological selection method by which the trainers are chosen from the large number of candidates with their diverse backgrounds, is the subject of this study.
