While designing and implementing all our emergency response trainings, we aim for the maximum training quality and facilitate new knowledge acquirement. This is the main objective which leads us to integrate different learning methods including:

  • Case studies based on real humanitarian emergencies and own experiences
  • Group discussions
  • Simulations or demonstrations on the use of original material
  • Role plays
