Abstract: The present study has been carried out to know the perception of participant extension functionaries towards the SAMETI (State Agricultural Management and Extension Training Institute) training programmes. A list of trainees was obtained from SKUAST-K and three departments (department of Agriculture and department of Horticulture and department of Animal Husbandry) have been purposively selected for the study because the extension functionaries from only these departments have undergone training programmes. An ex-post facto design was adopted for the study and 110 extension functionaries were selected by proportional allocation method. The findings of the study revealed that majority (55.9%) of trainees from agriculture department, 65.7 per cent from horticulture department and 56.1 per cent from animal husbandry department were moderately satisfied with the training programmes. Also, 30 statements were used to check the level of satisfaction of trainees in different areas of trainings (viz., nature of the training programme, management of training programmes, content of training programmes, medium of instruction and usefulness of training programme) and the ranks of the statements were found. We can conclude that training programmes organized by SAMETI-Kashmir were very effective and participants were satisfied with the training programme.
