Dear Colleague,

Our online training programs are live and interactive, much like our well-known, in-person offerings. Understanding that the ILI Advantage is best experienced in-person but learning needs to take place now, we are offering the following: if you attend an ILI online course during 2020, you will receive a scholarship to attend a future, in-person or online training course of equal value between now and December 2023.

ILI has updated many of our fundamental courses to deal with crisis. For example, International Public Procurement will have more emphasis on emergency procurement, and Contract Administration will cover more on Force Majeure. In addition, we have created the ILI COVID-19 Webinar Series, this is a series of free webinars lead by ILI experts to address specialized angles on how to deal with the COVID crisis. This can be found at ILI COVID-19 Webinars.
