Capacity building of staff working in the Mine Action Programs in Lebanon is required to support and enhance the effectiveness of operations. The key tools used to build capacities across all pillars of mine action is training. Such training should be provided within defined core competencies identified for each position and deemed required for successful performance. All training should be designed to achieve the transfer and retention of defined knowledge and skills to the trainees, along with an appropriately responsible attitude to the work. Based on the competencies required, staff working within the Mine Action Program in Lebanon should receive relevant training to enable them to conduct their work effectively and efficiently whenever necessary. Depending on need and the availability of qualified trainers, required training may either be provided internally or externally. Internal training may include on-the-job training (OJT) or internal structured training. Training courses or workshops should be conducted at premises approved by the Lebanon Mine Action Center (LMAC), which may include the LMAC premises or the Regional School for Humanitarian Demining in Lebanon (RSHDL). External training should include structured training that is customized to meet the specific needs of the HMA context in Lebanon. It may be provided by local training providers or by international training institutions or specialists. All training provision should be based on assessed needs as identified by the LMAC or the Implementing Agency (IA) through the application of a Training Management Cycle (TMC).
