  • Descriptive data and mean with 95% CI for amount of training and level of confidence for practical procedures. The means represent the composite scores, and the scale ranges from 0 to 4. The p values show the level of significance between the associated and the prior subgroup, as calculated by independent samples t-tests.

  • *P values calculated between respondents without military experience and all respondents with any (basic+advanced) experience.
