The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of job factors, constructive organizational climate and extra-organizational factors on the transfer of learning with the mediating role of learning transfer mechanisms on the consequences of learning. The research method was descriptive-survey and based on structural equations. The statistical population of the study included all managers, faculty members, staff, experts and human resources specialists of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad who were employed in the year 2019-2020. This number includes 1881 people. The study sample was determined based on Morgan table 225. A researcher-made questionnaire based on a 5-point Likert scale was used to collect data. Content and construct validity of questionnaires were confirmed by several management and factor analysis experts. To analyze data from questionnaires. The results showed that job characteristics and constructive organizational climate have a positive and significant relationship on the transfer of training, but the role of extra-organizational factors do not have a positive and significant relationship on active participation in education transfer. Also, active participation in education has a positive and significant relationship on the mechanisms of learning transfer and transfer mechanisms have a positive and significant relationship on the consequences of learning transfer. Transfer strategies as a mediating variable have an indirect and significant relationship between constructive climate and job characteristics on the consequences of transfer
