The Capacity Building Committee (CCC) of the Latin American and Caribbean Organization of Supreme Audit Institutions (OLACEFS), in coping with the current health crisis and the challenges that are imposed on society at the personal and professional level, highlights training as a powerful tool to stimulate the motivation and creativity of professionals. In addition, it can have a positive impact on the qualifications and productivity of partners in post-pandemic recovery.

It is in this context that the CCC invites everyone to participate in the various online courses offered permanently by the Committee.

In the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) format, the CCC highlights the online course on the 2030 Agenda and the role of the SAIs in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a course that is freely accessible to anyone interested, without limitation of number of participants.

This course aims to train professionals to understand the concept and characteristics of the 2030 Agenda, as well as to provide information to assist audits in the area of SDG-associated programs. The course has versions in three languages: English, Spanish and Portuguese, and presents innovative pedagogical technologies, such as avatars, videos, gamification, storytelling, educational games and peer reviews.

The CCC also highlights courses with open enrollments this month, offered through the Educational Management System (EMS), to OLACEFS’ SAI collaborators.

The course Design of communication strategies for audit products, offered by the SAI of Chile, is open from May 4 to 29, 2020, on the EMS platform.
