Lecturers also shared actual field stories and experiences that provided the participants with practical tips and efficient methods needed for their advancement.
The training program was capped with a written examination prepared by the engineers from the Bureau of Quality and Standards (BQS) to gauge the knowledge and skills acquired by the participants during the program.
