Construction and validatio of a training transfer scale

The goal of the article is to describe the process of construction and validation of a training transfer instrument. The data was collected at the end of the course by a digitalized questionnaire. The items of the questionnaire were associated to a scale that measures the frequency that the participants utilized to describe behaviors in the instructional objectives after finishing the course in their place of work. Analyses of principal components, factors and internal consistency have been made. The unifactorial structure obtained had 24 questions (α=0,96). The bifactorial structure obtained was composed by factors such as strategic business planning (17 questions, α=0,94) and finance business planning (7 questions, α=0,95). The results indicate that the scale is statistically valid and reliable.
