The OceanTeacher Global Academy (OTGA) established a global network of Regional Training Centres to deliver customized training for ocean experts and professionals to increase national and regional capacity in coastal and marine sciences, services and management. The RTCs include Belgium, Colombia, India, Kenya, Malaysia, Mozambique, Senegal, Iran and China.
The OceanTeacher e-Learning Platform enables the sharing of standardized, quality training contents in a coordinated framework, whilst allowing the use of different languages as well as local / regional case studies. It is a comprehensive web-based training platform that supports classroom training (face to face), blended training (combining classroom and distance learning), and online (distance) learning.
Courses cover a range of topics related to the IOC programs, contributing to the IOC Mandate and the implementation of the IOC Capacity Development Strategy, enabling equitable participation of all IOC MS and IOC Programmes.
