The United Nations Public Administration Network (UNPAN) online training center has re-opened its courses for the year 2010 in English, French, Ukrainian, Russian and Arabic and soon in Spanish
The training center delivers courses on various topics in public administration with the main objective to increase the opportunities for government officials from all over the world to access training materials on e-government. Each course is self-guided, and must be completed within 60 days of registration. A certificate of completion will be awarded at the end of the course.
The online training courses will also be translated into Spanish as a result of collaboration between Hunter College, City University of New York and DPADM. Ms. Maria Cornelio, Coordinator of Spanish Major Concentration in Translation/Interpretation of Hunter College, proposed the translation of these online courses into Spanish at a recent meeting with Ms. Haiyan Qian, Director, DPADM.
As per Ms. Cornelio’s proposal, it was agreed to arrange the translation of the UNPAN online training courses from English into Spanish without cost. The training courses in Spanish will increase the opportunities for government officials from Spanish speaking countries to access training materials on e-government.
UNPAN online training courses are available to anyone with Internet access and are provided free of charge by DESA. They are currently available in English, French, Ukrainian, Russian and Arabic.
