Questions to include on your Training needs analysis questionnaire

1. Company Information

Understanding the company's background can provide meaningful context for the training requirements.

  • What is the name of your company?
  • What industry does your company operate in? (Manufacturing, IT, Healthcare, Other)
  • How many employees does your company have?
  • Where is your company located?

2. Training Needs

This set of questions will help identify the type of training that the company needs.

  • What is the main goal of the training?
  • What specific skills or knowledge should the training cover?
  • Who is the target audience for the training? (Management, Employees, Other)
  • How many employees will be participating in the training?

The question about training goals is key to understand the company's expectations and ensures the training is relevant and achieves its aim.

3. Training Delivery

These questions will help determine how the training should be delivered.

  • What is the preferred delivery method for the training? (Online, On-site, Hybrid)
  • If online, what platform do you prefer to use for the training?
  • What is the proposed timeline for the training?
  • How many sessions are preferred for the training and their preferred duration?

Understanding preferred delivery method will help in planning and customizing the training program.

4. Training Budget

Knowing the company's budget for training can guide the planning process in a cost-efficient way.

  • What is your budget for the training?
  • Will you require any additional materials or resources for the training?

Budget questions are essential to ensure that the provided training solution will be financially viable for the company.

5. Contact Information

This is to ensure a point of contact for any further details or communication.

  • Who should we contact for further information?
  • What is their position in the company?
  • What is their email address?
  • What is their phone number?

Having a point of contact ensures smooth communication and coordination throughout the planning and execution of the training program.

Things to consider

  1. Simplicity and Brevity - Keep the form as concise and straightforward as possible. People are more likely to complete a form that doesn't feel overwhelming or time-consuming.
  2. Logical Flow - Organize questions in a logical manner to not confuse the form filler. Start with general company information, and move towards more specific training details.
  3. Clear Instructions - Provide clear instructions for each question to avoid confusion. If a question requires a specific format or type of answer, make sure to indicate this.
  4. User-friendly Format - Use form features like dropdowns, checkboxes, or radio buttons for quick and easy responses. Text fields should be reserved for questions that truly require open-ended responses.
  5. Validation - Use form validation features to ensure that all data is entered correctly. For example, the form should check that the email address entered is in a valid format.
  6. Data Protection - Be mindful of the personal data you collect, like contact information. Ensure you include a clear privacy policy, and that the form is secure.
  7. Feedback Option - Include an optional text field at the end of the form for any additional comments or suggestions. This can provide valuable feedback to improve the form and the training program.

How to create your Training needs analysis questionnaire

Now that you know what questions you should include, it's time to build your form!

The only problem is that traditional forms tools are inefficient.
