Data were collected from 105 respondents of ten villages of Sadar Upazila of Netrokona district through interview schedule in April 2007. Most of the respondents were in high need of training for their better performance and participation in IGAs of SUS. The relationships between their characteristics and training need were tested by computing the co-efficient of correlation. Education, farm size, participation in IGAs and credit received were found positively correlated with their training need whereas age of the respondents showed negative significant relationship with their extent of training need.
