Training Success Story

BWSR Academy Repeat Sessions


In December 2020, BWSR offered repeat sessions of several BWSR Academy sessions whose initial live versions reached capacity limits. When registering, LGU partners shared that they were appreciative of having another opportunity to participate in these training sessions. Registration for the individual repeat sessions was as high with most sessions reaching capacity again. BWSR staff would like to thank trainers who were able to offer their session a second time online.
