Pre-Arrival CPIE Coordination and IM Core Skills E-Learning Modules, Part A

The overall aim of the CPIE Coordination and IM Core Skills Training is to strengthen and to improve the core skills of current and potential Child Protection Coordinators, Co-coordinators and Information Managers.  Prior to arrival, this training requires all participants to have a basic level of theoretical and practical knowledge and skills of coordination and IM.  The purpose of the pre-arrival e-learning modules is to prepare you for the 5-day simulation.

The e-learning component is composed of two parts: Part A and Part B.  You are viewing Part A.  In Part A, we have four modules with accompanying assignments to be completed and submitted to Sara Lim ([email protected]).  You must complete Part A by 18 May 2016.  This will ensure that you receive feedback on your work.  Once you complete Part A, you will receive a link to Part B. 

 To qualify to attend the in-person portion of this course, you must complete and submit all assignments in both Part A and Part B.
