The researchers used the achievement test and observation card as a tools of measuring the program effectiveness, study results indicated statistically significant differences with a value of (T) for the difference between the average of dimensional applications of the achievement test and skill performance (51.36-15.45) in Information Technology teachers’ practice, which resulted in a value at statistically significant level of (0.001) and the training program was effective, as the profit rate of black was 1.33-1.41 respectively. It is a statistically significant value as it is more than 1.2. The effect of the training program was high in terms of both cognitive achievements and skills.
