    Abstract

    In the field of HRD transfer of training is of particular interest because of its link with training effectiveness. In general, three categories of transfer influencing factors are distinguished: characteristics of trainee, training design, and work environment. Based on a review of existing research a new transfer of training model is developed. This model contains the major influencing factors and their relation with learning and performance. The transfer of training model is tested in a corporate setting. Results indicate that trainee's self-efficacy and the supervisory support are important factors.
