In almost all mine action programmes there will be a requirement for the training of staff for operational and management tasks. Training can be carried out in two ways, informal or on-the- job training, and formal training. On-the-job training is normally carried out with small numbers of staff or on a one-to-one basis. It tends to be on-going and provided on an ‘as required’ basis by more senior staff. Formal training is normally delivered to a group of trainees over a finite period of time in the form of, for example, a training course or a workshop. Formal training may be directly conducted by mine action organisations themselves; by a central training facility established by the National Mine Action Authority (NMAA), or by international training institutions or experts.


Training should be developed in response to confirmed needs and so a training needs analysis should be conducted first. Training should then be delivered by qualified trainers taking into full consideration the different needs of the students e.g. gender and diversity issues. To ensure good quality training the NMAA should set national guidelines for the management of training, to monitor the progress and delivery of training and to assess the outcome. The NMAA should specify the requirements for the management of training in national standards.


Note: On-the-job training can sometimes also be conducted as formal training
