CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

I strongly agree with Recommendation #3. All members globally should have access to the best training available and not just what has been developed for their country.

I would love to see a more "open source" model for training materials. If you want members to spread the word and use the materials professionally, they need to be publicly available. This does not take the place of attending formal training because at the training one has access to the wealth of knowledge from the trainer, which is highly valuable. Having the materials available to the world would be hugely useful for advocating IAP2 methods/techniques/culture to elected officials and government staff.

Feel like it is a model to try an please everyone, rather than something that will lead to a coherent vision for the profession and its development
