The official EMMA Training is a five-day guided study of the Toolkit, covering its purposes, principles and processes. The course is aimed at humanitarian practitioners and managers in general emergency response, food security, shelter, watsan, livelihoods and economic recovery. It is also relevant to donor and government partners in the humanitarian community.
The course was designed by Tony Dines, and accommodates up to 24 participants, hosted by two facilitators. It uses a very participative and interactive style of training, that is proven to be effective and relevant. It has been successfully run ten times in international locations, by different members of a team of trainers that is now increasingly experienced at delivering the course.
