This article made use of the model "Revised adult attitudes toward continuing education scale" (RAACES) to investigate the attitudes of adult learners in Vocational Training Centers (VTC/KEK) in Greece. The work aims to confirm the scale-measuring attitudes of adults resulting from the adoption of the RAACES model. Based on the results of the investigation in which we conducted 100 interviews with adults trained in the use of VTC (KEK), with a structured questionnaire of closed questions, the results of factorial analysis (factor analysis) suggest the existence of three dimensions read through the nine items of the RAACES model. Finally, the empirical results are discussed and suggestions for practical implementation are proposed. (Contains 5 tables and 2 notes.)
