As noted by Taylor and Hamdy (2013), for learning to occur, skill practice is very important during training sessions. If the trainers are expected to do things differently, they should be provided with many opportunities so as to be comfortable when accepting new knowledge in a non-threatening environment. This is an indication that learners should have successful experiences to use techniques and information learned in class so as to increase the probability of applying them on the job. With adequate practice, the newly learned knowledge becomes the norm. Additionally, when provided with practical experiences, learners will understand how to apply the learned knowledge and skills in their jobs and thus would be encouraged to use them to improve their efficiency and effectiveness (Stahl & Davis, 2011). This way, learning will have occurred because it would be clear that it has impacted behavior. When training employees, learning will occur if what they are taught is applied in their jobs.
