Abstract : The report contained the results and analysis of several surveys given to Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). The study was conducted to determine the utility of capitalizing on previous knowledge that new inductees into the US army gained from prior attendance at civilian Vocational Technical (VOTEC) courses. The benefit would be to reduce the course length of Advanced Individual Training (AIT for particular Military Occupational Specialties (MOSs). The analysis determined, through descriptive statistics, t tests (comparison of scales), and cluster (classification) analysis, that there were negligible differences between common sections of these courses. Also, the survey instruments were good tests and would approximate the responses provided by similar survey instruments. Included as appendices were various Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) outputs, SPSS data files and Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
