The purpose of this study is to investigate the extent to which qualified training was given to trainees of Armed Forces of Bosnia & Herzegovina by trainers of eufor Operation Althea. To that end data were collected from 135 trainees. Differences between trainees’ expectations from and perceptions of training were assessed. Results indicated that training was responsive and empathetic, on the other hand not tangible, reliable and sure enough according to trainees. Findings suggest that in order to create desired effects on trainees, within scope of peacekeeping operations, trainers should be knowledgeable and accurate. In addition, a proper learning atmosphere should be provided.
