Transfer of learning is a very critical issue which is previous studies found that less than 15 to 20 percent of learning outcomes in training institutions can be applied in the workplace. Failure to learning transfer involve various factors such as area of training, certification level, instructors, facilities and industry recognition. This causes trainees to face difficulties at their workplace due to incompliance to the employer requirements. Thus, this study investigates the learning transfer factors and association among the factors of skills training system based on National Occupational Skills Standards (NOSS). An exploratory sequential mixed method approach was implemented that involve two phases. First, a case study was conducted with 11 respondents, which were the instructor, the NOSS panel, employers and former trainees to explore the learning transfer phenomena.The data was collected via face interviews, focus group discussions and observations. The data were analyzed using thematic analysis to identify on theme. Secondly, a survey via questionnaires were distributed to 309 trainees of Malaysian Skills Certificate to generalize the findings of the case study. As for quantitative data, Partial Least Squares-Structural Equation Modeling (PLS-SEM) was used to predict the relationship between the constructs. The findings of the case study revealed that there are five themes, 20 sub themes and 65 sub codes. For the survey, findings revealed that the constructs of the model are valid and reliable. It indicated that the work environment constructs is the most important construct in learning transfer, followed by training design, trainee’s characteristics and virtual learning space. The results also indicated that there are two insignificant relationships, which are: between trainee characteristics and virtual learning spaces to learning transfer (generalizations and retention construct). Finally, a learning transfer model for skills training system based on NOSS was produced. The implication is that the training institutes need to pay attention to the features found in the model that takes into account the both learning context which in training institutes and workplace learning.
