Preparedness of Learning Research Study

Research Participants Wanted

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to learn more about the experiences of skills training for adults. We also want to learn what prevents people from deciding to enroll in training programs. This study will help us learn more about how to support workers in training programs to help them learn new skills that they may need for their employment. This research has been approved by the University of Manitoba Health Research Ethics Board (# HS23511 (H2019:512)).

HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE: To participate in the study, you must be:

  1. 28 years old or older;
  2. Living in Manitoba; and
  3. Willing to complete a survey (30 to 45 minutes).

For participating, you can choose between a gift card from Amazon or Walmart.

If you decide to participate, you will be asked to complete a survey about your experiences and feelings around adult training programs. This survey will likely take 30 to 45 minutes to complete. You have two (2) ways to participate:
