Abstract—The purpose of this study is to examine the relationships among transfer of training, knowledge characteristic of work design and work outcomes. Transfer of training is not only served as the predictor, but also the moderator to the prediction of knowledge characteristics towards outcome variables. Subjects are 252 teachers and administrative staff coming from various school levels. Results indicate that among the five-characteristics of knowledge, the variable specialization is positively correlated to outcome variables. Nevertheless, transfer of training can positively predict outcomes. More importantly, transfer of training as a moderator can influence the relationship of specialization for satisfaction to organization, but not for satisfaction to performance and job performance. These results suggest that in order to achieve satisfaction and performance, human resource practice agency should design training that gives trainees the ability to enhance knowledge and skill.
