Event Survey Questions for Training Events
As training materials, course formats, and instruction methods are constantly evolving, it’s critical to collect the feedback necessary to improve your future training events. Event surveys are the best way to get a sense of who your participants were, why they attended, and how they felt about the training, as well as what went well, what needs to change, and what was missing.
But putting together an effective event survey question list isn’t as easy as it might seem, so we created a full Training Event Survey Template that’ll save you time planning your next training event.

We know what it takes
Businesses and organizations of all kinds are hosting training events every day. People everywhere participate in training events to get CE credit or certification, to gain new skills or knowledge, to network with colleagues, or just because they’re interested in the topic.
Regardless of who or what it’s for, organizers know that it takes a lot of time and diligence to create a training event that will meet learning objectives and provide satisfactory educational value for participants (not to mention the creativity necessary to make the sessions interesting and engaging). The right set of pre-event and post-event survey questions will increase survey participation after the training and produce the feedback you’ll need.
How did we come up with it?
To come up with the best set of event survey questions for your training event, we started by gathering survey questions from hundreds of events. We carefully reviewed, sorted and analyzed each question. Then we interviewed some of Whova’s most experienced event organizers to find out which kind of questions produce the best results.
