The ARSET program provides training in a variety of disciplines: air quality, water resources, land management, etc. The survey starts with general questions that we ask of all training participants. We have used the generic term "focus area" for these questions, but we ask you to think about your own area of expertise (air, water, land management, etc.).

Your feedback is critical to helping evaluate this ARSET training course and improve future courses. All responses are confidential, and participation is optional. We welcome your constructive criticism and thoughtful responses.
Thank you -
The ARSET Training Team.
