Training for Civil Servants

Access to Public Information Training Course is now open for registration. This educational initiative will be useful for civil servants and staff of local self-government bodies. The course talks about access to public information and ways to ensure citizens’ right to information during the wartime.

Continuous improvement of civil servants’ competencies in this area will ultimately enhance their ability to deliver high quality open data and ensure their ease of use for business, media and the public. 250 civil servants have already completed this training program.

 As a result of the training, you will learn how to:

  •       Apply national legislation on access to public information;
  •       Use international standards and best practices in this field;
  •       Disclose public information in the open data format;
  •       Protect information with restricted access when it is published;
  •       Evaluate and justify the reasons for restricting access to public information.

The program is designed for one week as a combination of both asynchronous distance learning and in-person training of two days. The course will begin on August 7.
