Training Opportunities

Through partnerships, the OAS is able to offer training tailored for executing agencies of DCF-funded projects. This offer responds to Member States’ call to the Organization to provide support, technical assistance and guidance to strengthen the local capacity of executing agencies in designing and fine-tuning the various activities of the programs developed under the Fund. To this end, the main focus of the training offered in this section is project design, management, monitoring and evaluation. In order to provide a broad range of training options, some of these offerings are free of charge and others require payment. We encourage executing agencies to explore the range of training options available.
