  • Each training course is composed of three successive levels (intermediate, advanced and proficient) with different educational activities:

  • modules (course contents) which are linked to training objectives,

  • mini-quizzes,

  • a qualifying test.

  • Fairtrade Africa staff, with the guidance of their line managers, will, therefore, have to establish efficient study methods before they start the training, in order to be as organized and successful as possible, bearing in mind that there will be a final qualifying test to reward their efforts with a digital certificate.
