This facilitator’s guide has been revised from the first produced
guide for the Disaster Preparedness and Prevention Initiative
Project in South Eastern Europe.
The guide was distributed to participants in the workshop for
risk and vulnerability assessments which was implemented by
the National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) in Botswana
and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) in 2013. This guide is designed to help you (the course organiser) to plan and
conduct the course. It is not meant to be Training of Trainers
Manual, although it covers the basics and essentials in good training
practice. The guide includes information on how a course is
designed, how to organise a course, how to adapt the material,
and tips that will help make your course a success.
This guide does not cover designing training material. There is
guide that covers this subject and should be read and
used in conjunction with this Facilitators’ Guide. This guide assumes
that training material had already been designed and ready to use,
and focuses more on the practical aspects of organising and running
a course and facilitations and organisation skills and tips required
to do so.
