Abstract
DCIEM has been tasked to develop Occupational Physical Selection Standards (OPSS) with the aim of preselecting recruits to physically compatible military trades. Selection will be based upon the predictions of future performance from the physiological parameters of anthropometry, endurance and strength as evaluated by a battery of tests and measures. Administration of the battery at the Recruiting Center (prior to Basic Training) has been proposed. The question at hand has involved the effects of the Basic Training Program upon the development of OPSS in the event that the Recruiting Center is eventually selected.
