Marketing Text The courses are the core result of the SIWHP training and contributed to reach the main objective - to train a group of the Slovenian occupational health specialists and trainees.
The training course was attended by 26 participants (occupational health specialists and trainees) that have registered for the course after several mail (regular mail and e-mail) notifications of the target group (of approx. 150 occupational health physicians). English was the main language of the course, all the materials were prepared bilingually, only some of the introductory lectures were held in Slovenian.
The two courses were implemented with a three months gap between them in order to allow adaptations of the course content, structure and training materials based on the results attained during the first training period. The first course was scheduled for May 2012 (from 17th do 19th and from 24th to 26th May) and the second one was held in September/October 2012 (from 27th to 29th September and from 4th to 6th October 2012). Following the needs assessment, each course of total length of 6 days was split into two sections of three consecutive days, from Thursday to Saturday.
Both groups received the case study on the first day of the face-to-face training in order to have time to read it before the second day when the case study exercises started.
The course was thoroughly evaluated.
The participants had an opportunity to get acquainted with the course and its content through the website (www.si-whp.eu) that was put on-line in the end of April. During the training course they should login to the e-learning section of the project website and take part in the forums by posting at least two questions/comments on every topic but it turned out that this task couldn't be performed because this target group is not used to this type of learning.
The participants also received some training material:
- printed handouts of all the modules in English and Slovenian,
- printed case study in both languages,
- the original manual prepared for the Romanian project
- instructions and a template for the final assignment.
Three weeks after the face-to-face part of the course the participants had to submit the final assignment via website or e-mail.
