7.1 Trainee Evaluation
The quality of training programs, course content, and instructional mode is best evaluated
by the performance of the trainee after the training has been completed. The best
measurement of program effectiveness is to require the trainees to demonstrate the
knowledge and skills associated with the subject materials. Successful completion of
examination(s) on modules in Section 4 will indicate that the trainee has an adequate under-
standing of the course. The effectiveness of the training in Section 5 may be better
evaluated by interviews and observation of job performance.
7.2 Program Evaluation
To establish and maintain an effective program, periodic or continuing evaluation is
necessary. An important aspect of this evaluation is communication among members of the
training organization, departmental supervisors, and the trainees to promote program
updating and improvements. Consideration should be given to the following items:
Trainee examination results
Employee job performance related to the program topics
Regulations and standards affecting this program.
Necessary changes to the program content, instructional materials, training methods,
examination techniques, training facilities, or instructional staff should be identified to
designated management representatives. Responsibility for initiating and following
corrective actions should be assigned.
