This research conducted with the following objectives: to study the effectiveness of learning sanitation subject by Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and to study students’ satisfactions of learning by PBL. The results found that mean scores from the formative evaluation of work behavior according to the lesson plan learning by problem-based learning are equal to 85.56%. The mean scores of the achievement test before learning are equal to 20.20 of 30 scores and the mean scores after learning is equal to 25.67 of 30 scores. This indicated that the efficiency of the sanitary learning by PBL after learning was higher than the efficiency before learning. The students’ satisfaction with learning by problem-based learning were in high level, and their satisfactions with each item were also in high level.
