Comments or suggestions to improve ABClean course


The ABClean pilot training participants made some comments and suggestions to improve ABClean course.

The trainees mentioned that training course was easy to understand, good and thorough evidence of historical asbestos identification, safe use and removal techniques enhancing previous knowledge and certification, useful, excellent and very good, detailed course, very satisfied, first ever on line course that made training enjoyable, well presented.

What is more, participants made some suggestions for improving ABClean course:

- More pictures or asbestos in the industry.

- For module 7 some of the screens related to external communication skipped ahead (they would only show for a few seconds even when I moved back to the screen).

- Several sketches of the presentation disappear after a few seconds. This needs to be rectified.

- Not all modules appropriate to all. Particularly module 7.

- More visual adds could be used during modules as opposed to full written slides.
