Abstract

Implementation and adoption of mobile training are still nascent in the public sector in the UAE. A successful migration model for a mobile training
system relies on user support and acceptance as well as the decision to migrate to mobile training. The study aims to investigate a comprehensive range
of the factors that influence the intention to use and support to change to mobile training in the Sharjah police general command – UAE. The proposed
conceptual framework includes Individual Beliefs (attitude) (IB), Facilities Condition (FC), Habits (HA), Intention to Use Mobile Training (IUMT),
and support to change to mobile training (SCMT). The study's target population is all the staff members of the General Department of Sharjah Police
in the Emirate of Sharjah, which has a total of 7,715 employees and a sample size of 367. The final dataset includes 373 respondents collected from 19
different departments by using the quota sampling technique. Results of intention to use mobile training (IUMT), illustrate a satisfactory predictive
power; the three variables; IB, FC, and HA can explain 44.6% of the variance. The precedence of the impacts based on the path coefficient is individual
belief, facilitating conditions, then habit. Results of support to change to mobile training (SCMT), illustrate a moderate predictive power; the four
variables; IUMT, IB, FC, and HA can explain 63.6% of the variance. The precedence of the impacts based on the path coefficient is the intention to use
mobile training, then individual belief. The three main predictors have impacts on the support to change to mobile training (SCMT) either directly or
indirectly. Based on the total effect, the precedence of the three main variables is individual belief, facilitating conditions, then habit.
