SPHERE Standards Training – Knoxville, TN

Date(s): April 20-24, 2020
Description:

The Sphere Standards are international standards for emergency response that seek to provide quality and accountability to humanitarian response. This five-day training will present the standards through participatory learning, lecture, and structured exercises & case studies. The standards are set out according to the four sets of life-saving activities: water, sanitation & hygiene; food security and nutrition; shelter and non-food items; and health action. This workshop will help you understand and apply these international standards. Those who complete the entirety of the training will receive a certificate of that will be internationally recognized. This is not a substitute for Disaster Response training but is a parallel to it. You can learn more about theĀ Sphere Project.
