Following a needs analysis that UNDP commissioned in 1998 and the successful development of its mine action senior management training course, UNDP developed a separate mine action training course for middle management.

* The course will help meet the needs of middle-level national mine action managers and enhance their management skills, which are critical to productivity and effectiveness. The Middle Management Training will focus on day-to-day operational and management skills, improving personal skills, planning, logistics and human resource management, and equipment maintenance and procurement.
* The course offers sessions on strategic planning, change management, and leadership skills. It covers mine action topics, including mine action standards and technologies and other developments in the mine action industry, as well as mainstreaming mine action into development and inclusion of a gender perspective into programmes.
* Mine action case studies will provide opportunities for students to apply management topics to their own work. Although the course has a focus on mine action, it also provides background relevant to other aspects of conflict prevention and recovery. Training manuals have been developed for use by local trainers and students.
* The syllabus will be tailored to the specific needs of each mine action programme, taking into account language, varying cultures, skill levels, stages of programme development, and course sizes.

* Five middle management training courses will be provided at the regional level in 2007.
* Transportation will be provided to students.
* Materials will be translated as needed.
* A train-the-trainers component will be provided.
* Quality of courses will be assured.
