dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to measure the impact of professional ethics awareness training on the individual’s perception of ethics issues. The study was framed around the neurocognitive model of the ethical decision-making process presented by Reynolds (2006). The quasi-experimental study included 94 information systems (IS) technology students enrolled in a number of colleges from across western Canada. The study found no significant effect of training on perception of ethics awareness. Moderating effects of moral identity and rule orientation, and the mediating effects of professional identity, proved to be non-significant as well. However, post-hoc analysis found significant effects between professional membership and ethics awareness, and semesters completed and ethics awareness. Implications for human resource development, in terms of training for ethics, are discussed. en_US
