IDI/ARABOSAI Certification Programme for Training Specialists 2013-2014

Beneficiary level: Regional
Project status: Completed
Duration from: 2013-01-01
Duration to: 2014-12-31
Total budget (US Dollar): $89095

IDI certified training specialists are key resource persons used for professional staff capacity development initiatives in SAIs, ARABOSAI and internationally. ARABOSAI has two pools of IDI certified training specialists created in 1998 and 2003. However the pool is fast depleting due to training specialists leaving the SAI or being on secondment to other organizations. ARABOSAI has expressed an urgent need to replenish the pool of IDI certified training specialists. In its Strategic Plan 2013-2017, the ARABOSAI has expressed its strategic intention of supporting SAIs in strengthening their capacities through training and human resource development. The IDI launched the third round of certification programme for training specialists to address the immediate needs of the region and support the region and SAIs by enhancing professional staff capacity to deliver participatory training. 
Expected outcomes:
1. Certified training specialists are used in local training and capacity building initiatives
2. Certified training specialists are used in regional trainings and capacity building initiatives
3.Certified training specialists are involved in IDI/ARABOSAI cooperation programmes
Lessons learnt:
Identify and keep reserve instructors in case of non availability of main instructors
 Need to offer certification programmes on a regular basis so that the pool is not depleted
 Need to establish measures for continuous professional education and consolidating the pool into a active community of practice.
