Course outcomes:

Identify a variety of potential and actual impacts on the environment and use the correct terminology to describe them

  1. Surveys and Questionnaires: Trainers often use these immediately after the training to assess the participants’ understanding and satisfaction. They can also use them months later to evaluate the long-term impact of the training
  2. Tests and Assessments: These can measure the increase in knowledge or skills as a result of the training. They can be administered before and after the training to measure improvement.
  3. Observation: Supervisors and managers can observe employees in their work environment to assess changes in behavior or performance after the training.
  4. Interviews and Focus Groups: These can provide qualitative data on the impact of the training. Participants can share their experiences and the changes they have noticed in their work as a result of the training.
  5. Performance Metrics: These are quantitative measures of performance such as sales figures, production rates, or error rates. If these improve after the training, it can be an indication of the training’s impact.
  6. 360-Degree Feedback: This involves collecting feedback about an employee from their peers, subordinates, and supervisors. It can provide a comprehensive view of the impact of the training.
