A large number of researches indicated that training motivation as the mediator on the relationship between independent variables and training effectiveness. Interestingly, various factors were indicated to stimulate training motivation and effectiveness; however the interaction between these variables has received little attention. Hence, the aim of this study was to determine the interaction between variables related to training effectiveness, especially the mediation effect of training motivation. Using samples of participants attended compulsory training to obtain certificate for practice organized by the Malaysian NIOSH (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health) in 2015; findings indicated that training motivation only mediated the relationship between training-characteristic support and training effectiveness with a large effect. However, there is a chain-linkage relationship between these variables; findings were supported by previous research. Hence, findings can be used for planning intervention to improve training effectiveness and organizational performance in the global economy context.
