Training Needs Analysis Questionnaire
In order to get the best from your training, you need to discover your relative strengths and weaknesses.
Answer the following questions, simply by clicking either YES or NO to each one.
At the end, as a result of the answers you have given, you will receive your free personalised, training needs analysis.
The training analysis will reveal two things:
- Your relative strengths and what you can do to profit from them.
- Your relative weak points and what training you might need to improve them.
This questionnaire is free, it is informative and fun.
