International Mine Action Standards Training is a three-day intensive course which provides a rapid review of the content of IMAS and focuses on the application and inter-relationship of the standards.
The course aims to provide a ‘what you need to know’ guide to IMAS and an overview of how the standards can be applied at national level.
The course is intended for international technical advisors supporting mine action programmes, senior national staff and military personnel deployed in humanitarian demining and peace keeping operations.
Cost of training, training materials, coffee breaks and lunch will be provided free of charge by the GICHD. Each participant is expected to cover the remaining costs (ticket, accommodation and subsistence cost). GICHD offers a limited number of sponsorships to applicants from national mine action programmes from developing countries with no other funding opportunities.
Request for sponsorship should be sent to IMAS(at)gichd.org.
