The study attempted to determine the effectiveness of DAE training courses conducted for improving block supervisors’ agricultural extension skills. Data for this study were collected from 102 block supervisors using designed standard questionnaire. The result revealed that block supervisors perceived the evaluation of courses and attainment of course objectives as satisfactory level. The similar result was obtained in regard to course design and delivery, which indicated that trainers could effectively provide agricultural extension training to the block supervisors. The block supervisors, however, expressed poor perceptions towards the quality of training materials, transportation arrangement and refreshments. It is therefore, recommended that providing sufficient training materials, enough transportation facilities and refreshments should be a gradual process for improving the quality of agricultural extension training in Bangladesh.
