In the present study conducted in Kashi Vidyapeeth Block of Varanasi District, 20 Community Health Guides (CHGs) were trained in order to strengthen their knowledge in some selected areas of Primary Health Care. Of the total score of 235, the mean score in pre-training was 115.65 (49.21%). During the first post-training assessment done after 3 months the mean score increased by 61.50 (26.17%) which was statistically significant During the third post-training assessment after 9 months of training, the mean score increased significantly from the pre-training assessment by 38 (16.17%). Separate analysis for each item revealed significant improvements in the knowledge of CHGs after training. Age had no significant influence in the gain of knowledge. The increase in knowledge was significantly greater in CHGs with higher formal education. The “practitioner” group of CHGs could gain and retain more knowledge compared to the “non-practitioner” group.
