Definition:

Training transfer enables employees to apply the skills learned in training on the job.

Training transfer is performing certain activities before, during, and after a training session that enable employees to more effectively and quickly apply the skills learned in training on the job. Training transfer is the goal when employees are involved in any internal or external training activity, session, seminar, or on-the-job training.

The goal of training is to enhance the skills, knowledge, and thinking and learning ability of employees. But, even more important is the capability to apply the new information, skills, or knowledge in the employee's job.

Taking training transfer one step further, ideally, the employee learns the new information, applies the information on the job, and then, shares the new information by transferring the knowledge (training) other employees.
