The primary purpose of the present study was to validate Morgan and Casper's training reactions questionnaire (TRQ) for use in Jordan. The study also investigated the reactions of university students to career-related training programs. Another purpose of the study was to determine the impact of certain aspects of training programs on the overall satisfaction of university students with the quality of the programs. The validated TRQ was administered to a purposive sample of 304 participants who completed at least two training programs. Results showed that the TRQ is valid for use in Jordan. Results also indicated that participants exhibited high levels of satisfaction with all aspects of the training programs completed. Further, based on regression analyses, results indicated that utility of training had the highest explained variance followed by course materials and course structure. Finally, the study provided a number of practical and theoretical implications for the field of study.
