On her part, the Acting Course Coordinator, Dr. Cynthia Addoquaye Tagoe urged participants to recommend the courses to others, particularly, as they had found them beneficial.

She indicated that ISSER was ready to customize the training to suit any institutional request.

In her overview, the class representative, Mrs. Akosua Kwapong commended the facilitators for a good work done. She was optimistic they were going to apply what they had learned.

A high point of the closing ceremony was the presentation of certificates to participants which was done by Prof. Asante.

Participants’ views about the course were captured as follows:

“It was very, very educative. I learned new things we did not know at the office. The caliber of facilitators was amazing. They took us through practical sessions which were good”- Mr. Ayan Anthony Sackey, GIMPA

“The course was very good and will help us conduct survey much better now. We have now known how to write proposals and are better placed to critique proposals that we receive from the public. The know-how I have received will be applied to my work” - Mrs. Afua Sarpong Appiah-Kubi, COCOBOD

“Looking at the entire course, I can say the content was okay. It was hard time convincing my institution to agree to send us to the course. But at last, two of us attended and we have gained a lot” - Mr. Jeffery Bafo Ampofo, PBC
