Latest News » Enroll In Freedom Of Information Courses At LIPA

 The Carter Center and Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA) present warm compliments and wish to inform you about newly developed courses in diploma and certificate in Freedom of Information (FOI) at the Liberia Institute of Public Administration that target the following relevant public/private sector staff:

a)      Public information officer/designated information officer (PIO/DIO)
b)     public servants of all levels, particularly those working with citizens and/or are more likely to handle public records, receive and transfer requests for information to PIOs, record manager, agency leaders, etc.
The diploma is a 10-week course that targets PIOs, while the certificate is a 3-week course to target other relevant public servants. The courses cover modules related to FOI and good governance, FOI implementation, reporting, records management, and the role of gender in FOI. Instructional method includes teaching sessions, lectures, presentations, group work, class discussion, assignments, exams, and a practicum for the diploma course. The program aims to train public officers and other relevant staff to effectively and efficiently execute their responsibilities as required by the Freedom of Information Act of 2010.  
 
The content of the courses was developed involving the Carter Center, LIPA and the National Police Academy & Training School with support from the European Union (EU) to help the Liberian Government enhance governance and democracy through access to information. Recruitment to the course will begin November 2019, while classes are expected to commence February 2020. 
 
In view of the foregoing, we are hoping this will generate the necessary interest to elicit your entity’s participation in training your staff support public access to information and implementation of the FOI Act of 2010. Attached are brochures and posters that provide detailed information about the courses.
Thank you for your understanding and should you have any questions or need additional information, please contact:
