Description This qualitative study analyzed the results of asking the major question: What are the elements of effective contingent employee training in a mosquito control district? The study also analyzed a minor question: how can a mosquito control training program take in to account contingent employee's knowledge and experience and apply it towards the job? Participants were four employees, two contingent employees and two permanent, of a mosquito control district in a medium sized city. The data was collected from the participants who were surveyed and interviewed as well as using a researcher's journal. The study found three main themes from interviews with employees; the first theme is the influence of employee attitudes and beliefs towards training, the second theme is values towards content and the third theme is optimal delivery methods of training. These three themes addressed the major and minor research question concerning the elements of effective training of contingent employees at a mosquito control district. The research found contingent employees have unique experiences which can be beneficial to employee training. The research also found management plays an important role in the training of contingent employees. There are certain aspects of employee training which both contingent and permanent employees found both positive and negative. Future implications are for further studies to be done with a greater number of employees of the mosquito control district to provide a greater understanding of effective employee training.
