Two day Advanced ActivityInfo Training

Following the latest developments in relation to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to postpone the training in Beirut, Lebanon. We plan to reschedule the training later this year and we will keep you informed.

On May 25-26, we will host an advanced training session in Beirut, Lebanon. By hosting this training we wanted to ensure that current and new users in the Middle-East, working in various areas such as M&E, IM, program management and coordination will be able to learn about and practice with us on more advanced features of ActivityInfo.

Participants will learn to set-up fully working and interactive databases with more complex configurations and will get the knowledge to move from a simple reporting database setup to an advanced Information System. We have designed the training days in such a way that everyone who participates and has experience in database management will be able to easily follow every step in mastering the software. Each day includes hands-on exercises where you will practice what you have learnt. There will be one-on-one support from our team to every participant.

In order to be able to provide personalized support to every participant there are limited seats so make sure you book your seat early enough.

Please note that this is a training given by the ActivityInfo Training Coordinator, it is not an internal training of an organization; we won’t be covering the specifics of reporting to an individual cluster or donor.

Who is this training for?

The "Advanced ActivityInfo Training" is a fast-paced, two day session for users who are already comfortable with the general setup of ActivityInfo and are interested in honing their skills in using the software in more complex settings.

This training is ideal if you have been using ActivityInfo for a few years and you want to expand your capabilities by practicing with more advanced features and exercises. If you have never used ActivityInfo before, it can be a beneficial session for you and allow you to take a deep-dive into advanced form and database setup. This training can be very helpful if you want to learn how to move from simple data collection for your organisation to creating the advanced systems for collecting this information.

Information management officers, IM coordinators and IM consultants, M&E or MEAL officers and consultants, project or programme managers who want to get hands-on experience on using the tool or want to introduce a new tool to their organization to improve their processes, you are all welcome to join us in this training.
