Uses and Limitations

A high training participation rate during a specified period indicates that a high proportion of adults have been trained during the period.

However, when interpreting results over time, it is important to note that even if the training participation rate is unchanged over the year, the participants are not necessarily the same.

Measuring training participation alone does not adequately gauge the level of training efforts. A high participation rate indicates that more adults are involved in training, but it does not given an indication of the training intensity. For the latter, we look at the duration of job-related structured training per adult.
