Make Skills Transfer Easy


Make it easy to transfer new skills and behavior from the training site to the job site:

  1. maximize the similiarity between the training situation and the work situation.
  2. provide adequate practice.
  3. label or identify each feature of the machine and/or step in the process.
  4. direct the trainees’ attention, to important aspects of the job. For example, if you’re training customer service representatives how to handle incoming calls, first explain the different types of calls they will encounter and how to recognize such calls.
  5. provide “heads up,” prepatory information. For example, trainee learning to become first-line supervisors often face stressful conditions, high workload, and difficult subordinates back on the job. Studies suggest you can reduce the negative impact of such events by letting trainees know they might happen.
