Abstract
A comparison was made between the degree of orientation towards navy life of recruits trained in a special 12 week 'naval environment' training course at Halifax and recruits trained in the normal system. The normal system consists of 11 weeks basic recruit training in combined environment at CFB Cornwallis followed by 4 weeks training in the naval environment at CFB Halifax. The method was used to elicit spontaneous comments from the recruits by using structured interviews and questionnaires, and then to assess the degree to which these comments related to naval interests and activities. The assumption was that if a recruit made a large number of favourable comments he was positively oriented towards a naval career. Such orientation would presumably tend to result in longer and more productive service.
