Transfer of training is vitally important in today's workplace, where organizations spend millions of dollars on training their employees. The purpose of this study is to identify effective tools for the transfer of training.


A survey was conducted of Midwestern trainers in the USA to identify the three most effective tools for transfer.


A limitation to the research may be that only one area of the USA was used in the survey.

Practical implications

Future research might include a survey of trainers throughout the United States and/or in other countries. To ensure that transfer of training occurs, trainers may want to utilize these three tools that have been identified.


The paper identifies effective tools for the transfer of training.
