This study aims to discuss the joint relationship of trainer directiveness and trainee learning experiences with training engagement. Survey responses were gathered from 99 employees at Johor Port, Johor, Malaysia using self-administered questionnaires. The result revealed that trainer directiveness has a positive relationship with training engagement. It was also found that trainees’ learning experiences are positively correlated with training engagement. This study suggests that organizations take into account the differences in trainer’s instructional style and trainee’s cognitive process and motivation when implementing training programs since both factors may significantly affect the outcome of the training program as implied by the findings of this study. The study also proposes to the trainers the use of directive style in instructional settings as the specialization of directiveness give a positive influence to training engagement and subsequently, provide benefits to the trainee learning.
