Factors Which Influence Electronics Technicians to Participate in Work-Related Training.
Kuo, Chu-Hsun Mike
A study was conducted to identify the factors that influence electronics technicians to participate in work-related training and to explain the relationships among those factors. Questionnaires were mailed to 130 randomly selected electronics technicians in Oregon in March 1988; 47 technicians responded. Multiple regression and partial correlation were employed to verify the proposed causal model. The study found that electronics technicians' participation in work-related training was influenced by their willingness and ability to participate. Their willingness to participate in work-related training was determined by their job satisfaction and external expectations. Reducing restrictions on participation, providing flexible time to attend, and paying for training costs were effective ways of increasing technicians' ability to attend, and, therefore, of encouraging them to participate in work-related training.
