RETRAINING OF RATINGS FOR OFFICER RANK: BIOGRAPHICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND MOTIVATIONAL DETERMINANTS OF WILLINGNESS TO BE RETRAINED

The study focuses on differences in biographical and motivational characteristics between ratings who were willing to be retrained for officer rank and those who were not. Data were collected by means of individual structured interviews. Results indicate that personal characteristics such as age, family status, education and army experience significantly differentiate between the two groups of ratings. The motivational force (in the nomenclature of the VIE theory) in entering the officer rank was also significantly higher for ratings willing to be ratrained.
