Hints for Writing Practical Training Logbook


Requirements of the Training Logbook

The Training Logbook should be a complete record of the practical training received during the course of study at HKUST. Detailed description and technical information of each training module should be given in the Individual Training Reports. These marked Reports should be included in the Training Logbook as the core contents, marked Workbooks, if any, can be included in the appendix 2. You are required to add the Introduction and Conclusion sections to compile the Training Logbook.

The Training Logbook should clearly state the training objectives. It should emphasize and show your personal observations and interest in the training, your capability on problem solving and your ability to comment and make suggestions for improvement in a constructive and professional manner. You should highlight what you have appreciated from the hands-on experience and elaborate on how you benefit from the training. Good presentation and report writing skills are required. It should be written in your own words, in clear handwriting, and in a neat and tidy manner. The Logbook forms can be downloaded from ITC webpage.

As for Group Training Reports, for example the Environmental Monitoring and Quality Assessment (USTENV) module, and Safety Training (Risk Management) module students can decide whether to include them in the Training Logbook or not.



If you are partially exempted from Industrial Training and need to take only a few modules, you may be exempted from doing the Training Logbook. You will be notified together with the exemption results.
