Abstract:

The attitudinal differences in the BCT and AIT groups may not have been a function of the effects of their respective training cycles and their time in service since the groups differed significantly on six of the eight background items. These conclusions must, therefore, be regarded as highly tentative. Taking this caveat into consideration the following conclusion were offered 1 training was slightly more intense for the BCT respondents 2 no major problems were apparent with respect to training intensity 3 with regard to ancillary training factors, BCT respondents tended to perceive their cadre as more knowledgeable and, 4 no major differences were found with respect to the morale of the two groups. BCT respondents tended to be more favorably predisposed towards reenlistment, although the absolute difference between the two groups was small.
