  1. I’d like to know the difference between the foundation and advanced levels of M&E course and how can I know which of them will suit my.

    1. Dear Yara; Thanks for your interest in our Monitoring and Evaluation courses. As for the foundation level, it tackles the basic knowledge that any M&E officer should know such as Results Chain, indicator and how to set M&E system in your organization as well as Evaluation types and DAC criteria. The Advanced level tackles deeper knowledge such E-monitoring and how to use M&E in communication and Impact Evaluation. You can not go to advanced M&E before having the previously mentioned background. Thanks and kind regards
