Abstract : Training records at the Naval School of Diving and Salvage for the years 1965-1970 were surveyed. Four hundred sixty-four complete records for diver first class students were found. These records were used to evaluate existing, readily available aptitude tests as predictors of success in diver training. Scores on four subtests of the standard navy enlisted classification battery along with age were evaluated statistically. The results are discussed. (Modified author abstract)
