Abstract

Competent computing skills are critical for successful business operations and the accountants who sustain them. Developing competent skills requires not only knowledgeable trainers but also facilities able to support and deliver instruction to accounting trainees in efficient ways. Technology-equipped training environments have long been espoused as essential environments needed to speed delivery and enhance the learning experience of trainees. This study examined the impact of training environment on knowledge and skill set development. Results suggest that there are limitations to the extent to which technology-equipped training environments influence learning.
