Abstract : Personnel research is currently underway at NUC, Hawaii, with the ultimate objective of developing and validating a personnel selection and assignment procedure for marine mammal trainers. A primary objective of this project was to gain an understanding of the human attributes and characteristics which tend to make for success in marine mammal training. Such information was basic to developing a quantitative criterion of job success for use in validating selection tests.
