Education is a phenomenon that causes behavioral changes in the person given. Education

which is a tool used by organizations to develop their employees and hence themselves, is also one

of the primary methods used to overcome crises, pandemics and disasters. In addition, in-service

trainings are also used as a motivation tool for employees. In-service trainings cause loss of time for

organizations despite their mentioned benefits. Therefore, it is necessary to optimize the education

method, duration and cost. Based on the mentioned importance of the subject, in this study it is

aimed to optimize the decision problem related to that how in-service trainings should be given in

organizations (face-to-face education or distance education). The fuzzy logic was used as the

method because it is suitable for the nature of the problem under consideration. For this purpose, a

fuzzy system with 5 inputs and 2 outputs was created and solved with MATLAB's fuzzy logic

toolbox. When the results of study were analyzed, it is seen that 4th and 8th trainings should be

given in the form of distance education and 5th-7th trainings can be given in the form of distance

education or formal education.
