Utilizing the subjective outcome evaluation approach, the present study examined the views of the potential program implementers of the Tin Ka Ping P.A.T.H.S. Project held in Jiujiang, China. Upon completion of this workshop, a total of 171 junior and senior secondary school colleagues completed a well-validated close-ended questionnaire by rating on dimensions including training content, instructor quality, administrative arrangements, and perceived self-performance. Analyses revealed that an overwhelming proportion of trainees indicated satisfaction with all these four dimensions. Echoing the previous findings, perceived training quality significantly predicted participants’ perceived benefits and overall satisfaction. Instructor quality also significantly predicted perceived benefits, with the latter being a significant predictor of overall satisfaction as well. In conjunction with other studies assessing the effectiveness of the training workshops, the present evaluation study indicates that the training workshops of the Tin Ka Ping P.A.T.H.S. Project are positively perceived by the potential program implementers.
