Objective: The aim of this study is to enhance the efficiency of education and training through application and management of `Transfer of Training` in nuclear power plants. Background: Despite the sophistication and standardization of job-related skills and techniques of workers, accidents/incidents keep taking place due to human errors and unsafe actions and behaviors, which translates into the necessity to review and examine the effectiveness and influence of education and training on the workers of nuclear power plants. Method/Results: This study drew the factors of `Transfer of Training` through a review on the preceding studies and document research. In addition, through expert examination, this study explored the expected effects and possibility of application when managing the influencing factors of `Transfer of Training` in nuclear power plants. And lastly, management priority order for nuclear power plants was drawn through an AHP analysis. Conclusion: Among the `Transfer of Training` factors, the training design factor was the most important. In addition, the design of the training and transfer and goal setting showed a high degree of importance among the influencing factors. Application: The management of `Transfer of Training` in nuclear power plants enhances the capability of workers and improves the operational integrity of nuclear power plants.
