The purpose of this study is to examine the transfer of training and its relationship with Trainees' Characteristic, Programme Design and Organization Support in skills transfer, using two evaluation methods: self-rating and end result measurement. The barriers of training transfer faced by programme participants were also studied. In addition, a comparison of mean differences was carried out on selfrating and end result evaluation method. A total of 52 middle managerial staffs both academic and non-academic from INTI COLLEGE, Nilai were selected using stratified random sampling techniques. These respondents participated in computer skill-training programmes, namely MS Word, MS Excel, MS PowerPoint and Internet conducted by the college in year 2000. Data was collected using self-administered survey questionnaire. Responses were analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS). Measures of Central Tendency, Standard Deviation and frequency were used for descriptive analysis while Person Product-moment Correlation Coefficient (r) was used to determine the relationship of the variables. Analysis of Paired-samples T-Test was used to determine the differences between the level of transfer of training using selfrating skill method and the end result measurement.
