Online courses

Together with our partners, NODEFIC offers a number of open access online courses.

NODEFIC takes pride in utilizing new technology for learning, and offers our course participants and others, access to new knowledge and insight through online learning.

The four courses currently available have in common that they offer an introduction to their respective subject matter. The course can be utilized for several different purposes. NODEFIC use them as a prerequisite for course participation, to ensure that all participants have a basic and common understanding of the course subject matter.

We also encourage former participants to use the courses as a form of repetition after finishing the course in Oslo. The online courses can be useful to new staff in missions as an introduction to their new positions, or to other interested in the subject matters.
