The courses are available in English and French and are being translated into Spanish. The courses are currently being used by over 15,000 registered learners all over the world.

Resources for trainers

Each course includes a training guide complete with a set of presentation slides, student notes and class activities that can be adapted by trainers to meet their own needs. If you would like to develop you own courses based on the ECFAO e-learning materials, you can access the Resources for Trainers section at: http://www.foodsec.org/tr_res.htm
