UNDP Training - Frequently Asked Questions


Are any discounts or sponsorships available on the course fees?

Since are training courses are run on full cost recovery, we regret that UNDP/PSO is not able to offer any discounts of sponsorships on the course fees.


Can I get help with my Visa application?

It is the responsibility of the participant to secure his/her own visa for the course destination.

However, after UNDP has received your payment for the course fee, we will, upon your request, send you a letter confirming your registration in the training course to be submitted together with your visa application at the nearest Embassy or Consulate. The letter will indicate your name, title and company/organization and the course period, as well as the address of the course venue.


Can UNDP arrange transportation from and to the airport?

UNDP does not arrange transportation to and from the airport. information on how to get from the airport to the course location, as well as estimated transportation costs can be obtained upon request from the Training focal point.


Can UNDP help me find a hotel and book a room?

For each course, UNDP will recommend a hotel/hotels that is/are nearby the training location, of good quality and at a reasonable price. Participants are kindly requested to do their own hotel bookings. and in some cases will be required to provide credit card details to the hotels.


Does UNDP have course grants/scholarships that I can apply for?

Unfortunately, UNDP is not in a position where it can offer grants or scholarships to participants, as courses are run on full cost recovery. Being aware that the vast majority of our participants come from offices where funds for staff training are limited, we have prioritized to set the course fee at a minimum price.


What is included in the course fee?

The fee covers tuition, training course material and refreshments during the course. Lunch is only provided when the training is conducted at a hotel where lunch is included in the Conference Facility package.

For the courses that have been accredited by CIPS, the two assessments are also included in the course fee. Should you fail the work-based assessment, a re-assessment fee of USD 250 (for Level 2 and 3) and USD 300 (for Level 4) applies.

You are expected to pay for your own airfare, transportation from and to the airport as well as accommodation.


Will I receive a course certificate after the course?

Yes, after the course all participants will receive a UNDP Certificate of Participation signed by the course tutor. The certificate will indicate your name, name of the course, location and dates.

If your registration is received less than 1 week prior to course start, your certificate will be scanned to you upon completion of the training course.


Will I receive copies of the overheads and slides that are presented during the course?

Participants will receive a complete set of the slides together with the training material at the course. However, due to copyright issues, we regret that the slides used by the tutors will not be made available on our website to participants after the training course.
