To implement the HCV Approach, users need to be trained on the approach itself and on how to put in place management and monitoring plans to protect High Conservation Values on the long term.

The HCV Network's Learning program is designed to:

1) Improve general understanding of the HCV Approach

2) Increase uptake of the HCV Approach across multiple commodities, geographies and sectors, and

3) Facilitate peer-to-peer learning opportunities

The Secretariat offers two types of training courses: on-demand and tailored. Courses are designed to provide the practical and in-depth skills and knowledge needed to implement the HCV Approach in a wide range of contexts.

On-demand

The HCV Network has an online learning platform that allows individuals and groups to study at their own pace, whenever and wherever they want.

Available courses

HCV and HCV-HCSA Assessor Training Courses

Format: Hybrid, in-person or online

Passing an HCV or HCV-HCSA Assessor Training Course is required for individuals wanting to become Licensed Assessors. These courses are only offered by Registered Training Providers (RTP) and by the HCV Network Secretariat, who must follow a specific course syllabus.

The Secretariat aims to deliver at least three online Assessor Training Courses per year. Please check the Latest section on our website or email training@hcvnetwork.org for more information.

HCV Screening Course

Format: Online

HCV Screening is the HCV Network's six-step process for considering the likelihood that High Conservation Values are present in landscapes and jurisdictions, identifying possible threats to those HCVs, and indicating which values are most urgent to attend to. The HCV Screening Course is aimed at high-level decision-makers, or project or program officers who will be involved in HCV Screening exercises.
