An inventory was designed to evaluate the transfer of training to the working environment. It was based on factors of the Learning Transfer System Inventory (LTSI) designed by Holton, Bates and Ruona (2000), Baldwin and Ford’s (1988) definition of the transfer process and Holton’s (1996). The inventory was tested in four Icelandic companies. Factors emerged linking supervisor support and sanctions, support of peers, training design, link between job performance and new skills. It is assumed that the inventory can predict how likely transfer of training is in a work environment.
