It is important to adjust training schedules to accommodate the work responsibilities of participants and ensure maximum attendance and participation. The project transitioned from face-to-face training to remote training to avoid COVID-19 infections. For many participants, the scheduling created conflict with on-going job responsibilities because the number of hours per day and the number of days per week required for the training were too many. Fewer hours per day and fewer days per week would have been more effective. Also, offering training session during non-peak business hours, such as mid-morning and early afternoon, would have been more convenient. Based on a midterm evaluation recommendation, the project started to record training sessions and make them available online to participants who could not attend. This is another option that future projects might consider when participant work responsibilities conflict with training schedules.
