Abstract
Information and Communication Technology (ICT) no doubt has improved the quality of life in the modern world and it is widely used by many professionals in carrying out their daily activities. Many organizations invest so much in training their workers on ICT applications. It is expected that training programmes will reduce computer anxiety and improve workers’ ICT utilization and productivity. This study therefore assessed the levels of participation in ICT training programmes, computer anxiety and ICT utilization among professionals in Ogun State Nigeria. The relationships among these variables were also investigated. A satisfied random sample technique was used to select four hundred and seventy seven respondents from four different professions in Ogun State, Nigeria namely teaching, broadcasting, medical and banking. Bank workers use ICT most and are also least anxious about computers. There is significant positive relationship between levels of participation in ICT programmes and computer utilization (r=+0.755, p<0.05). Organisations should do more to invest in ICT training so as to enhance productivity.
