Interviewer training is essential to ensure high quality data from interviewers administered surveys. This guide consists of two parts (I) the introductory and explanatory text and (II) the General Interviewer Training for Computer-Assisted Personal Interviews (GIT-CAPI) curriculum. The GIT-CAPI is intended to provide guidance on how to design, structure and conduct a general interviewer training for Computer-Assisted Personal Interviews (CAPI).
