Abstract
Despite the military personnel and resources devoted to peace support operations, little information exists concerning aspects of predeployment training. This research explores the extent to which 119 deployed CF peacekeepers report using each aspect of their predeployment training during their current deployment, and their confidence in applying predeployment training to situations arising during their current deployment. Overall, these peacekeepers report that they were currently using the majority of their predeployment training lessons, and over 50% of the sample stated that they currently use the information presented in each predeployment course topic either to some extent or a great deal. Moreover, approximately 50% of the sample indicated that they were fairly confident that they could handle issues related to each predeployment training module. Mine awareness training yielded the highest frequencies in terms of both current usage and confidence levels. ANOVA analyses indicated that use and confidence levels were not affected by mission theatre, soldier rank, or the level of contact soldiers reported with the local population or with other members of the multinational contingent.
