WTI/UNITAR e-Learning Courses for Trade Officials and Professionals
WTI/UNITAR Joint e-Learning Courses
The World Trade Institute (WTI) in partnership with the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) offers e-Learning courses in the field of international trade policy and regulation. The four to six week long courses are designed specifically for officials and professionals wishing to deepen their knowledge and understanding of international trade. The courses are entirely delivered via the internet, including thematic online discussions moderated by instructors who possess in-depth knowledge and experience of current trade challenges and issues. Certificates of Completion shall be awarded to successful course participants.
High quality training content will be provided by WTI and UNITAR for each course, which will form the basis for study, discussions, group work and individual assessments. The learning environment will comprise trade sector officials and professionals from all over the world (developing, emerging and industrialized nations) who will have a unique opportunity to study, share, and engage in practical discussions using our discussion board facility.
Through a unique approach linking economic and legal perspectives, each of our courses will aim to deepen the skills and understanding of participants, as well as allow participants an opportunity to network and dialogue with other officials and participants from across the globe so as to share country experiences and good practices in trade policy and regulation.
