Resources for trainers
To support trainers, the EC-FAO programme has created training resources based on the e-learning courses. Each course includes a training guide complete with a set of presentation slides, student notes and class activities that can be adapted by trainers to meet their own needs. If you would like to develop you own courses based on the ECFAO e-learning materials, you can access the Resources for Trainers section at: http://www.foodsec.org/tr_res.htm
