United Nations has launched an online training programme, United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), offering online training courses in international trade, financial management and intellectual property. Finance and trade professionals and officials, belonging to developing and least developed countries and economies, can take part in the training programme.
More than 10,000 officials especially from developing countries have benefitted from these courses since the inception of online courses in 2003. Officials and professionals have golden opportunities to become a trainee with UN through its new online training programme, UNITAR.
Until now, United Nations has been concerned with maintaining peace, generating employment and ensuring health programmes around the world, but the organization is now promoting training and research programmes too.
Aim of UNITAR
United Nations Institute for Training and Research is committed to provide pioneering e-learning courses by imminent experts in an interactive and flexible manner. These e-learning courses let professionals and officials interact with other participants, exchange ideas, and resolve queries through the facilitators from different backgrounds. International experts with thorough understanding of modern issues and challenges are involved in moderation of each course. The real-time experiences of experts let participants expand pragmatic and relevant insights on the modern subject issues.
Though UNITAR has been introduced this year, 2014, itself, it has already covered the level of ground work. The highly advanced online training programmes, created by notable educationists, are testimony to this fact. Each of the courses is designed to promote valuable interaction among the participants and retain their interest throughout. In fact, the training courses aim to offer participants clear picture of the real-time challenges in just 6 weeks of time, after which successful participants are given a certificate of completion from UNITAR.
