Over the course of 2 weeks, the trainees follow self-study modules using different types of training, including video tutorials, handouts, tests and practical assignments. The training focuses not only on the rationale behind the tools, assessment processes, use off the SCOPE App, but also on soft skills such as interview techniques.
  3. During the course, trainees submit assignments and participate in the webinars in which they get the opportunities to ask questions to their trainer.
