01 Aug Going Virtual: Online Training on MPA Management Planning
CTC organized a 4-day training on Marine Protected Area (MPA) Planning Management for Indonesian experts on July 26 – 29, 2020. The training was held to refresh the participants’ knowledge and skills in preparation for their competency assessment by the Lembaga Sertifikasi Profesi (LSP) Kelautan under the supervision of Badan Nasional Sertifikasi Profesi (BNSP).
A total of 22 participants from the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, Institut Pertanian Bogor, and non-government organizations joined the training that focused on MPA Management Planning and familiarized the participants with a virtual assessment process, instead of the usual face-to-face process.
The training was highly received by the participants. They were excited about the virtual method and e-learning platform, even though they experienced several challenges. The biggest challenge was that the instructions for the tasks they had to complete before the synchronized sessions were only available in the module. Wit the new normal learning platform ready, our trainees are well prepared to take the next step of their competency assessment!
