Recommend a simple survey to find out the detailed needs of the participants either before the date of the course through email or on the same day before the commencement of the course. A simple question e.g.: Why do you want to attend this course? Answers will be very varied, such as for a hobby, for my construction company's requirement, to find out local situations with successful implementations.... Lecturer can zero in and on the participants' needs. (Posted on 8/8/2017)

To have higher level courses like intermediate or advance course

The classroom layout can improve. 1) Aircon blowing directly at students (not recommended). 2) There is a pillar at the middle of the classroom thus block students view (for those sitting directly behind). (Posted on 6/25/2017)

Have instructional video clips for participants to review and revise at home in the event they cannot remember the steps. Provide participants with audio/video recordings of the training session.(eg via online download).

Provide notes/ slides to participants once their registration is successful. This will allow participants to read in advance and come more prepared for the course. (Posted on 8/16/2016)

The notes should be printed on white background. Can't write on a dark background. You're wasting ink as well. Writing materials, pens and writing pads, should be provided. Some hands-on practical would the course more interactive and interesting. (Posted on 7/4/2016)
