Abstract : Research was conducted to determine the effect of changing occupational specialties on the performance of Air Force retrained enlistees attending basic technical schools. The academic performance and attrition rates of approximately 20,000 retrainees and 230,000 non-prior-service enlistees (non-retrainees) attending 272 schools were compared. Schools were categorized by selector aptitude index requirements into 18 subgroups for analysis. Data were compiled from historical personnel records. Multiple linear regression analyses examined the relationship between school performance criteria and retraining status and aptitude as well as the amount of military service, career status, and background experience acquired prior to retraining for each subgroup.
