This paper seeks the answer of: “The Impact of Trainer on Training Transferability”. Since last two decades, the use of advance and immersive training simulators have became a common practice in various domains. With advancement in technology it is possible to conduct training without a trainer We currently know very little about the effects of training without a trainer. This research challenge was tested in an experiment to find the impact on the acquisition of skills of trainees with and without a trainer. To test this effect we used The Plant Simulator (Nazir & Manca, 2014). Findings indicate that persons trained with a trainer produce fewer errors and requires less help, while those trained in the augmented virtual reality simulator is more efficient and uses less time.
