This training targets humanitarian simulation facilitators at regional and national level.

Participant Profile: The following abilities and experiences should be considered for participants for the course

  • Planning and Organization: As much of the preparation work for a simulation requires a high degree of planning and organization, all candidates must have proven experience in this field.
  • Language: As this first course will be conducted in English, candidates must have a high level of the language (both written and spoken).
  • Presentation skills: As future facilitators, candidates must have prior experience in group facilitation particularly in working with senior managers and technical experts.
  • Professional experience: Candidates should have extensive experience in emergency preparedness and response with a UN, governmental, or non-governmental organisation active in humanitarian response. Experience at the field level would also be highly desirable.

There are limited spaces available therefore participants shall be selected on a first come first served basis.
