Komen :

Latihan ini amat bagus untuk diikuti oleh Pengurus, penolong pengurus dan juga jurutera kilang sawit. Kenapa? sebab salah satu aktiviti utama seorang pengurus dan jurutera adalah memberi latihan kepada pekerja dan orang bawahannya.

Ada perbezaan antara pensyarah (lecturer) dan jurulatih (trainer). Pensyarah cuma memberi syarahan dan lebih kepada komunikasi sehala. Manakala jurulatih pula adalah komunikasi dua hala. Task utama seorang jurulatih adalah memastikan teori difahami dan peserta boleh melakukan praktikal.

Jadi, sertai latihan BTTT kerana ia memang digunakan di tempat kerja. Pihak JKKP sudah mula meletakkan syarat kepada pihak pengurusan supaya meletakkan seorang jurulatih terlatih di tempat kerja bagi memastikan kualiti latihan yang diberikan.

Belajar sepanjang hayat.
