    This study focused on measuring the correlation between training administration and training motivation using self-administered questionnaires obtained from employees working in a military based health organization in Malaysia. The stepwise regression analysis was employed to attain the research objectives. The results showed three important findings: Firstly, support significantly correlated with training motivation. Secondly, assignment insignificantly correlated with training motivation. Thirdly, delivery significantly correlated with training motivation. Statistically, our empirical findings demonstrate that support and delivery were found to be the important predictors of training motivation while assignment was not an important predictor of training motivation in the organizational sample. In addition, discussion, implications and conclusion are also elaborated.
