Stakeholders also assume responsibility for supporting transfer.The goal of training is not simply to gain knowledge and skills, but to transfer learning into performance, which in turn leads to improvements in agency results. Training transfer is not an event; it is a dynamic and complex process that requires planning. The use of effective transfer of training principles can help maximize the effectiveness of training
