This research reports the evaluation of a current screening methodology and the feasibility of developing a refined selection methodology for entry into three medical technical training courses. Aeromedical Specialist 90130, Environment Health Specialist 90730, and Physiological Training Specialist 91130. A sample of 1,003 students who entered these courses during the 1973-1975 time period were administered three commercial tests by the USAF School of Aviation Medicine SAM. Aptitudinal and biographical data were retrieved from historical record files. Multiple linear regression analyses were accomplished to determine whether the commercial tests andor aptitudinal and biographical data contributed to the prediction of training performance. It was found that the most effective predictor composite contained both the commercial tests and the aptitudinal and biographical data. Results indicated that such a predictor composite can help in identifying potential failures andor personnel requiring remedial training in these courses. Author
