Abstract:

Subjects who had previously been trained in voice communication using telephone equipment were tested one year later to determine whether they retained the skill. The following results were obtained 1 Trained subjects made higher scores than did control subjects. Training had consisted of two hours of instruction and practice. 2 Performance on communication equipment one year after training was essentially as good as it had been immediately after completion of the training. The following conclusions seem warranted 1 Effects of voice communication training endure for a period of at least one year. 2 Improvement incidental to test-taking as evinced by the control group, is also retained however this skill remains inferior.
