Fee-based participation

The majority of our courses are also open to people who are working abroad for short periods of time. The prerequisite is that there are free places in the course that are not taken up by professionals who are leaving the country. This section contains all the key information you will need if you intend to self-fund your course participation.

Additional information

All international cooperation staff who do not meet the BMZ's participation requirements, as well as other interested persons, can register for our training via learning.giz.de under the tile "Skills4Abroad". You will initially be placed on a waiting list. We can only give a binding confirmation of participation after the registration deadline 19 days before the course starts. The prerequisite for this is that there are free places in the course which are not taken up by specialists leaving the country.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions regarding registration for the Skills4Abroad programme.
