The course is conducted using a highly- participative training delivery methodology through a combination of interactive presentations by subject-matter specialists followed by self-assessment exercises, individual and group assignments intended to facilitate the practical application of IFIs’ guidelines. Solution and analysis of case studies is emphasised as a principal technique for measurement of learning achievement and attainment of prescribed exit competencies.
