The main objective of training is to ameliorate employee erudition and the skills for their better performance. The performance is quantified in terms of the amendment in motivation, efficiency and the Employee Job Contentment. Both primary and secondary data sources were utilized. Structured questionnaire was designed to amass the information from the respondents. The accumulated data were analyzed utilizing descriptive statistics and multiple regressions. Regarding the frequency of training provided, many respondents, i.e., 139 out of 160 respondents avowed that they took training for one or two times.

Validity of the results can either be internal or external. Internal validity refers to the analysis of the precision of the results obtained. External validity refers to the analysis of the findings with regards to whether they can be generalized (Ghauri & Grönhaug 2005, 65). Where quantifications are utilized, there subsist variants of validity; face validity, which describes the extent to which the quantification used is plausibly capable of what is due to quantify, convergent validity, which describes the extent to which the quantification used can bring kindred results if utilized elsewhere and divergent validity that describes the extent to which one construct is distinguished from another (Ghauri & Grönhaug 2005, 83 – 84). Moreover, concretely four validity types for qualitative research subsist, which are often accentuated. They are: descriptive, interpretative, theoretical and generalizable validity. Descriptive validity is associated with degree to which the authentic description of the results is true. Interpretative validity is associated with the interpretation’s goodness. Theoretical validity refers to how adequate the 39 theory suggested is, such as whether the theory genuinely fortifies the study subject. Generalizable validity is referred to what extent the results of the study can be generalized, for instance, are the results of this study true for other organization so in the same industry? (Ghauri & Grönhaug 2005, 216 – 218). In this study, validity was taken into consideration. For example, because the questionnaire is constructed by the researcher, it is designed on the substructure of the researcher’s needs in cognation to the study topic and so brings advantages in the sense that it measures precisely what the researcher intends to quantify. The researcher consequently does not require to depend on other researchers for information on for example quandary areas and pertinence of the items included in the questionnaire. Further still, descriptive, interpretative, and theoretical validity were taken into consideration. Exhaustive literature review in the study area was conducted punctiliously afore taking on the research. This enabled theories and the questions in the questionnaire to be identified. Theories and themes are well fortified by the findings. Reliability refers to the stability of the quantification used to study the relationships between variables (Ghauri & Grönhaug 2005, 81). The questions in the questionnaire were designed taking into consideration the issues cognate to the quandary and goals of the study and theories on the subject.
