These courses are at an advanced, transactional-level and intended to be studied in an instructor-led environment. The courses may also contain links to simulations which can only be viewed if you are on the UN network. Some courses also have User Guides available for download. These are printable documents which include all of the detailed processes, transactional steps, and reference material for their respective course. These courses will each be followed by assessments, surveys and certificates which confirm that one has passed the training.
