Welcome to the ECCN training page. ECCN develops and conducts trainings related to its priority areas for USAID staff and implementing partners. Here you will find information about past and upcoming training offerings, and materials related to these.

Essentials for Education in Crisis and Conflict


ECCN conducted Essentials for Education in Crisis and Conflict alongside USAID’s Africa Education Regional Workshop in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in May 2016.

This foundational training gives USAID education staff the opportunity to gain and apply knowledge and skills to better design, procure, manage and evaluate education programs for the unique challenges of conflict- and crisis-affected contexts — including situations of high levels of violence, lawlessness and high disaster risk. This is a training that has undergone rapid adaptation and development itself through its four iterations. Please see the links below for training materials related to these meetings:

Nigeria – September 2015

Ethiopia – May 2016

Thailand – November 2016

Washington D.C – May 2017

Honduras – April 2018

Rapid Education and Risk Analysis

RERA TrainingRapid Education and Risk Analysis (RERA) allows USAID and its partners to get a snapshot of how education systems, learners, families, and their communities interact in a dynamic, multiple-risk environment. RERA integrates elements of conflict analysis, disaster risk analysis, and resilience analysis and can be carried out over two to three weeks. ECCN conducts two-day trainings for USAID staff and partners interested in learning the details; the first one occurred in December 2017 and more opportunities are planned for 2018. Please see the link to the training page:

RERA Training – Washington D.C. December – 2017

Safer Learning Environments (SLE)

Safer Learning EnvironmentsSafer Learning Environments is one of ECCN’s priority areas — dedicated to addressing education in conflict and crisis environments as a function of providing security, services, infrastructure, and stability, where the absence of such fundamental requirements will prevent effective learning. Outputs in this priority area include providing access to safe spaces, physical infrastructure, and basic education services, primarily to children and youth.

ECCN conducted an SLE training with USAID staff and implementing partners in Dec 2017. Materials related to this training are available:
