The question revolves around whether they feel that their abilities have improved after being trained. In what ways has it been improved and what has remained unchanged. In this study, questionnaires will be sent to trainees. The questionnaire questions will revolve around whether they feel their abilities have improved after training. Where it has improved and where it has not changed.  When designing the questionnaire, take into account the time spent by the interviewees, and the questions should not be too many. During the questionnaire survey, try to increase the number of participants to avoid bias in their opinions. Don’t deal with too sensitive issues so as not to harm the participants’ self-esteem (Menezes, 2012).  Why to choose Questionnaire is a survey suitable for this study. First of all, as the time for investigation and analysis is very limited, for trainees, more accurate ideas of trainees is required, so the number of
