(1) Background: The objective of this research is to analyse the validated psychometric characteristics of a reduced version of the Questionnaire to Evaluate Online Training in the Workplace (CEFOAL), developed to evaluate the impact of online training processes in terms of satisfaction with lived experience. (2) Methods: This instrument has a factor design structure of five latent factors, obtained through exploratory factor analysis (EFA). The factors are pedagogical design, tutor performance, virtual environment design, timing, and transfer of learning. The questionnaire was administered to a sample of 471 participants several months after they took courses on occupational health and the environment. The courses were provided through the ISTAS (Trade Union Institute for Labour, Environment and Health; Spain) e-learning platform. Subsequently, confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was performed using the maximum likelihood method. (3) Results: We were able to explain 71.58% of the total variance. Reliability, calculated with Cronbach’s alpha, achieved an overall value greater than 0.90 (α = 0.95). (4) Conclusions: This valid and reliable questionnaire, which incorporates a dimension that measures learning transfer to the job, can be applied in the evaluation of online training processes.
