The most effective training is that which takes place on the job or in a job-like setting.

Current research shows training is most effective when it takes place on the job and that the more training is linked to work, the better the result. Training received from an employer is also considerably more likely to be used on the job than is training obtained at a school. Basic skills are often easier to learn when they are integrated into a training program that is specific to the context of a particular job. Employer-provided training may also have more motivated trainees, more effective tutorial learning methods, and more appropriate materials and equipment.
