This enables him to get training under the same working condition and with the same processes, materials, and equipment that he will be using ultimately. On-the-job training is most appropriate for teaching knowledge and skills that can be learnt in a relatively short time and where only one or a few employees must be trained at the same level, time for the same job. But the success of training depends upon the ability of the trainer. The major advantages of this form of training is that it motivates the trainee to learn.
