IAAO will provide travel support to selected applicants (fees associated with visa applications are not covered).
IAAO requests that applications be submitted by NMI Directors on behalf of their staff and their DIs. NMIs who submit more than one application must provide a priority ranking. Applications and questions regarding these training opportunities should be sent to Andrew Conn (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline to apply is 31 March 2020.
Please note that the courses are taught in English without translation, so English language proficiency is a requirement to participate.
