||Military training has a high dropout rate but the role of occupational stress is not known. The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between occupational stress and outcome of training. Occupational stress in 476 army recruits was measured in Week 4 of 23 weeks of basic military training, using previously identified risk factors for lack of success in training and outcome of training. Using stepwise logistic regression, occupational stress levels as measured at Week 4 were significant predictors of outcome in training. Psychological scale scores predicted 85% of those who were asked to leave.
