Curriculum, Education and Training for Competent Practice

Trainees are all different, and trainers must account for variations in background knowledge, experience, culture, language and access to technologies, expertise and information. To train well, requires an understanding of the adult trainee, an expansive understanding of curriculum and the expected 'competencies' of the profession. This course aims to support the development of competent trainees, trainers, and systems. (Developed in collaboration with the International Atomic Energy Agency, Vienna, Austria).
