Abstract : This study is to develop an indoctrination course designed to prepare Air Force enlisted personnel for assignment to remote AC and W sites in Alaska. An indoctrination course consisting of a thorough briefing of site conditions was developed. The briefing was presented by an officer with firsthand knowledge of site conditions and in addition, 35 millimeter colored slides were used to augment the presentation. The existing site briefing consisted of lectures on Ground Safety, Fire Prevention, and Wild Life, plus a movie entitled Personal Health in Snow and Cold. The newly developed indoctrination course was compared with the existing course, and it was found that men attending the new course expressed more positive attitudes toward their site assignments immediately after the presentation, than did those who attended the existing site briefing.
