I guess I don't understand your setup. You're using xtreg, which is appropriate for panel data. If the original regression is

.xtreg y training meanworkplacetraining x2 x3 x4

and there is a possibility that training is endogenous, you definitely are violating the key assumption of the random-effects model, that the regressors are distributed independently of the errors. You should be estimating this equation allowing for endogeneity of the suspected variable, and need to perform a Hausman test of the appropriateness of the key assumption. You can do the Hausman test by estimating the model with -xtivreg- using RE and FE. If you find that the RE assumption cannot be maintained, then use - xtivreg2- with fixed effects and use the -endog()- option to test whether the endogeneity is an issue.

Thank you, Kit. I should have mentioned also that my original equation which has one of the RHS regressors as potentially endogenous is a random effects GLS model. Also I should have pointed out I am using cross-section data. Would your kind answer still apply?
