E-training structure

This training consists of 10 lessons devoted to concrete aspects of the results-oriented management. Basic knowledge about EU funds is recommended, but the training can address the needs of beginners, as well as more more advanced/experienced managers. Apart from the Introduction (Lesson 1) and the Wrap-up (Lessons 10), all core lessons (2-9) entail 2 topics and a short quiz (comprehension check, not graded). The topics consist of videos, exercises, reading documents and other forms of support. The training ends with a test which can bring you a certificate of qualification (for scoring at least 60%). In terms of workload, this e-training is equivalent to a 2-day “classic” face-to-face training. It is accessible online, anytime, anyplace at your convenience. Upon accessing the training you have got 2 months to complete it.

You can pre-order it either in individual capacity or for a group (technical assistance support).
