INTRODUCTION

Manpower training is central to the success and sustainability of any organization. This is so because, of all other resources needed in an organization, manpower is the most and crucial for the organization to achieve its set goals and objectives.

An informed and vibrant workforce is a big asset to an organization. Training physically, socially, intellectually and mentally is very essential in facilitating not only the level of productivity, but also the development of skilful personnel in any organization.

Therefore, human resources are the most valuable assets of any organization. With sophisticated and modern equipment, materials and even sufficient funds in an organization, nothing gets done without manpower.

It is recognition of this fact that Abiodun (1999:110) submitted that training is a systematic development of knowledge, skills and attitudes required by employees to perform adequately on a given task or job. It can take place in a number of ways, on-the-job, or off-the-job: in the organization or outside the organization or outside the organization.
