    • Plan for one training course (3 days) or two training courses (6 days) for each visit.

    • The organizer is responsible for the full expenses on the flight (premium economy class or above), accommodation, meals and transportation of two trainers. The Secretariat will provide flight itinerary as proof of purchase.
