Resumen

BERGES SALDANA, Alfredo. Predictive Variables of Training Proficiency in the Local Police. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.3, pp.163-176. ISSN 1576-5962.

Police selection includes a period of training in which candidates acquire the relevant skills and knowledge for work. This study was carried out with the Local Police of Zaragoza. It examines the validity of general mental ability, the personality dimensions and theoretical knowledge applied to work, in order to predict training proficiency. A multiple regression correlational analysis and path analysis were carried out using the data of 240 candidates to be police officers. The results show that training proficiency can be predicted by general mental ability, theoretical knowledge applied to the job and three personality dimensions: conscientiousness, openness to experience and agreeableness. A causal model is presented, including the direct and indirect effects the variables have on training proficiency in the case of local police officers.

Palabras clave : criterion validity; general mental ability; knowledge; personality; training proficiency.
