    The paper develops a “holisitic” approach to the further education and training behav-iour of corporations, which is founded on the transaction cost approach. Investments in further education depend on contextual factors, i.e. the company’s investment in mate-rial and immaterial assets, its labour relations and its staff structure. The empirical analysis was conducted based on data from the IAB establishment panel. The findings of probit and tobit estimates confirmed the theoretical results, whereas only a few variables were significant, if OLS estimates (for companies participating in further training) were used. This indicates that the decisions on the participation in further training and the intensity thereof are taken simultaneously. Therefore a one-phase estimate is most suit-able.
