The first round of the regular training session in using the Information Tracking System (ITS) with participants from DR Congo has been successfully conducted from April 5th to 9th.  Fifteen people from the National Committee for Protection against Ionizing Radiation (CNPRI) have taken part in the 5-day virtual training event, which included theoretical and practical work on all the modules of the platform. The trainees were gathered in a hotel conference room with uninterrupted internet where the Zoom-meeting was screened to a large display.

Two French interpreters were also present at all times to facilitate smooth communication between the French-speaking trainees and the lectors.

The course has started with a welcoming speech from the Director-General Prof Florimond Nyamoga Kabanda. After all subjects from the training agenda were covered, a real-time demonstration took place, including a vehicle with trackers on board going on a predefined route in Kinshasa’s outskirts, simulating an actual shipment. The participants were very proactive and skilful with the system, completed the online exam successfully, and were awarded Certificates of Completion of the course. CNPRI has provided excellent coordination and setting for the training
