As per my understanding as well as the our companies systems. We calculate the net effective hours utilized deducting breaks, in-training tests, discussions & query solving time. So we are generally left out with max 6:45 hours a day if we calculate full days working.
This would be more effective way of calculating the man hours so that we can get the best out of the training & we can understand the relative costs.

Actually while giving in the training sessions undergone by the employee we give in training mandays, so for one manday it is complete one day that is complete working hours in the company. Incase if company is split up of the training sessions into hours like every week or month post lunch sessions or like wise it depends upon how many hours sessions has been taken up and the whole together added up again to give the number of mandays only in the MIS or in the Safety Statistics etc.,

Dear Friends,
Man hours is nothing but no. of participants x No. of hours training provided. One Man day is 8 man hours. Ex. 15 participants x 8 hours = 120 man hours or 15 Mandays.
Hope this clears the doubt.

Hi there,
Man days of training
•Man days (correctly referred to as “people days”) Is an industry standard for measuring volume. As a volume indicator it is then compared with cost to give a unit cost
•If 9 people attended a two day course how many man days of training have taken place. 9 x 2 = 18 man days
•At its simplest calculating the unit cost is an easy task Total training costs divided by total man days = the unit cost for one day of training

Training Man hours = (as rightly stated by Manjunath) no. of trainees X trg hours
Training Mandays = sum total of (no of hrs the trainer has conducted a stand-up trg class)
If the trainer is responsible for coaching / refresher training on a regular basis, one can even consider those hrs in the trg mandays.

Dear Ram,
Multiply no. of participants with the duration of the training will give you Man Hours. Add all the man hours of all the training conducted and divide it by 8, you will get mandays

It is based on the premise that there has been a change in the components of market valuation. The traditional viewpoint is that when a firm rapidly earns more money

I think what some people says, it is easy to calculate the maydays instead of hours but it also depends on the duration and type of training session also the requirement for some certificates e.g. Project Management. We, in our company usually calculating as per the following:-
Soft skills sessions = Man Days
Technical sessions = Man Hours
