This was the culmination of the second phase of this course.
Phase 1 of the course included a workshop on Training Needs Analysis conducted by the project Key Expert Mr Mazen Asad.This was delivered on 29 Oct 2013 at the PCP Training Department as part of Component 2 of our Palestine PCP project.

At this event, Lt. Col. Abu Al Rub, Director of the Training Department, expressed his gratitude and satisfaction by the technical assistance and expert support provided on daily basis to the PCP by the Human Dynamics team.
The final “Identifying Training Needs” course session included a variety of topics, including job analysis tools, individual interviews and focus group discussions to collect information about the training needs related to performance. The trainees will use these topics and tools for information gathering. They will analyse this information in order for it to be used as inputs into the Training Department 2014 plan.
