Participants will normally be notified at least 7 to 8 weeks before the training starts whether they have been selected or not.
Applications will be considered based on:
- Entry test passed
- Practical managerial experience
- Key technical background
- Manager's written approval supplied with application
- Relevant university degree (or equivalent)
- Emergency experience
- Being in position to be deployed to humanitarian emergencies on completion of the course in an ICT role.
In-course evaluation of participants
During the course there are two components for evaluation.
- A written test (multiple choice)
- Project Plan and Budget
The written test is administered by the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna. The Scuola will award participants with university credits, based on their results in the written test.
Re-evaluation for past participants
For some students, the Project Plan and Budget they prepare for assessment may be the first they have ever done for an IT project. Often students miss out on a strong assessment result by missing one key component of the plan or budget, and with more experience they would have avoided this mistake. In recognition of these situations, we offer the opportunity for past students to be re-evaluated on their project plans and budgets. Note that re-evaluation of the written test is not possible.
For logistical reasons, re-evaluations are run in conjunction with delivery of the actual course, although handled remotely - i.e. via email and telephone.
If you are a past student and would like to find out more about the re-evaluation opportunity, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
