The scale was applied on a sample of 1,731 participants of a distance training about Prevention of Money Laundering, which was offered on-line for the employees of a Brazilian banking institution. The factorial analysis were conducted and the results have shown only one factor called support to learning, with 33 items, with factors oscillating between -0.30 and 0.89 and alpha of O.96. The support scale is considered trustworthy and valid, allowing the study of issues related to natural and induced learning at work
