1. Do you find the course meet your expectation?
2. Do you find the trainer knowledgeable in this subject?
3. How do you find the training environment
As time is very tight, delete the history part and include how to use the EC meter that we purchased during the class, some basic info on LED lights including some pointers on how to grow fruit vegetables (tomato, brinjal, ladies fingers) and flowering plants (marigolds, zinnias, nasturtiums, etc)

Gregory is very knowledgeable and passionate about hydroponics. Will you be able to organize a visit on a Saturday for past students to visit his work in NYP?

it can be more better if you can saw us the real hydroponic plants growing on real equipment

The slides can use some update with latest pic of problems, defects and successful examples. Links can also be provided to useful information where we can obtain more details.

if future lesson can tour a actual hydroponic setup is much better. I rather trade the 1st hour on history lesson vs looking at a real setup. (Posted on 11/4/2017)

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)

More hands-on would be more engaging. Provide a hotline/email to give practical advice and for troubleshooting
