Abstract:

The initial skill training of military enlisted personnel has historically been conducted by the military services. In light of expected changes in the size and structure of the force, and the increasing importance of the reserve forces, Congress has asked whether initial skill training for technical occupations could be provided by civilian institutions. This report describes an analysis of the issues associated with the feasibility of using civilian institutions for this purpose. It should be of specific interest to policymakers concerned with maximizing the effectiveness of military training resources and to educational institutions interested in understanding their role in providing military technical training.
