This work illustrates the psychometric properties of the Italian version of the Questionnaire for Professional Training Evaluation, designed and validated by Grohmann and Kauffeld. This 12-item questionnaire provides for the evaluation of different training outcomes, is time-efficient, applicable to several professional contexts and shows sound psychometric properties. In order to test the Italian form, we carried out two studies. In Study 1 (N = 125), an exploratory factor analysis led to a two-factor solution accounting for short- and long-term training outcomes. In Study 2 (N = 122), a five-model comparison was performed. Although at first a two-factor solution seemed to emerge, confirmatory factor analysis found the best fit in a six, inter-correlated, first-order factors model (satisfaction, utility, knowledge, application to practice, individual organizational results and global organizational results). Relationships with learning transfer, transfer quantity, type of training, training methodologies and individual variables--gender, age and tenure--are explored. Limitations and research and practical implications are discussed.
