    El mercado laboral español se enfrenta actualmente a graves retos y problemas, derivados no sólo de la actual crisis, sino también de la competencia a nivel internacional con países emergentes con menores costes laborales que ponen de manifiesto las debilidades estructurales de nuestra economía. Ante esta situación, cobra importancia la necesidad de elaborar políticas que fomenten una formación laboral efectiva, con el doble fin de mantener una fuerza de trabajo productiva y un tejido empresarial competitivo. La evidencia empírica sobre los efectos positivos que tiene esta formación laboral para los trabajadores es aún escasa y fragmentaria en España, debido en parte a que no abundan las fuentes de datos con información suficiente como para abordar los rendimientos de estas inversiones. El principal objetivo de este trabajo es evaluar el rendimiento en el mercado laboral de las distintas actividades formativas efectuadas por los trabajadores, mediante distintas especificaciones del modelo de ganancias de Mincer (1974). Para ello, aprovecha los datos de la Encuesta sobre la Participación de la Población Adulta en las Actividades de Aprendizaje (EADA, INE 2007). Los resultados obtenidos de la estimación del rendimiento salarial muestran que, efectivamente, la realización de inversiones en formación mediante cursos de cualquier tipo tiene un efecto positivo en el nivel salarial de los trabajadores, cuando se hacen por motivos laborales.
