Abstract : This study evaluated the competence of USAF Academy paraprofessional counselors in communicating a helpful response to assess the success of counselor training. The purpose of this study was to evaluate, by objectively measuring counseling ability, training for paraprofessional counselors who worked as cadre in Basic Cadet Training (BCT) at the United States Air Force Academy. BCT is a six-week training program for cadets entering the Academy, designed to provide military instruction and experience to transition the basic cadet from civilian to military life and provide a foundation for future military development. To meet the individual-specific needs caused by the strenuous environment, the USAF Academy uses upperclass cadets as paraprofessional counselors to the basic cadets.
