Abstract

In the Tin Ka Ping P.A.T.H.S. Project training workshop conducted in Suzhou, China in May 2015, potential program implementers received a 2.5-day of training. A total of 122 participants completed a subjective outcome evaluation questionnaire after training. Quantitative evaluation findings revealed that the respondents generally had positive perceptions of the different aspects of the training program. Consistent with the previous findings, multiple regression analyses showed that perceived program quality predicted both perceived benefits and overall satisfaction evaluation of the training. In sum, the present study suggests that the training program was effective in helping potential program implementers to acquire the required knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values through training.
