  1. Note: The table shows the average time dedicated for a training session by participants using data for 2015–2016 (SK) and 2014–2015 (NB). The bottom panel shows travel time and accommodation & per-diem for the trainers. All entries other than accommodation & per-diem are reported in hours. The average times (in hours and days) are an intermediate value that is applied to calculate costs for various activities in Table 3. Large communities have a population of 100 000 or more, medium communities have a population between 30, 000 and 99, 999, small communities have a population of between 1000 to 29, 999 and rural communities have a population of under 999
