Survey Training & Learning Resources

STLR: A curated collection of tools for training survey teams and supporting learning

We created these tools to boost our enumerator trainings, improve our facilitators’ abilities, and support our survey staff’s ongoing learning. They were developed, adapted, and improved with the support, testing, and feedback of our colleagues across PMA partner institutions. And now we are sharing the best tools with you! We invite you to use and adapt these tools for your teams, your questionnaires, and your specific learning needs.


The PMA team is so welcoming and well-versed. They believe in imparting knowledge further."
