At the beginning of the training, a self-assessment is carried out to evaluate the level and expectations of each participant. In this way we can best organize the different working groups. Afterwards, the trainer conducts an ongoing evaluation using the practical exercises. At the end of the training, each participant's progress and achievements are self-evaluated. The trainer provides each participant with an evaluation, as well as areas for improvement.
