aim of this study is to determine the opinions of the primary and secondary school teachers about in-service teacher training programs in Turkish Educational System. In-service Teacher Training Inventory (ITTI) developed by Yamak et al. (2011) was administered to 681 teachers from 26 different schools in Ankara. The main results of this study showed that teachers don't prefer distance learning although nearly all of them have computers and internet access at home. According to teachers' opinions, in-service teacher trainings should be carried out in teachers' own schools, within working hours, by university lecturers who are experts in their fields.
