Often attention was paid to the training program itself, the training environment, the trainer and the organizational climate and culture to apply the same into work.

Trainees though found to be an important factor in success of any training program often this factor is limited to theoretical analysis. Rarely organizations and particularly the training department dare to ponder this. The type of trainee or in other way the characteristic of a trainee is found to be influential in many of the researches earlier.

This will help the training department to be more cautious while choosing their trainees to deliver an effective training program to fetch a dream achieved.
