HD Training Center

Human Development Training Center (HDTC) Courses

From leadership building for community representatives in Cambodia to expert training and awareness promotion for flood prevention programs in Ayutthaya, the Human Development Training Center by HDFF has a proven track-record of successful capacity building across a broad spectrum of professions and skills.

In 2013, HDFF began a two-year capacity building project in Southern Thailand to empower local NGOs and local authorities to design, propose, and implement their own development and peace-building projects. The project aimed to directly train up to 1,100 participants, some of whom you may learn about in this video (w/ English sub-titles). HDFF’s “Stay Safe” Training was also featured in a 30-minute special on TV television, which you can watch here.

Though our most popular series of courses are the “Stay Safe” trainings for security managers of UN organizations and INGOs, we have so much more to help you and your organization develop the necessary skills to succeed.

As we update our website, we will include course descriptions for upcoming and popular courses.

Payment and Visa Policy

All payments for course fees must be received by HDFF prior to the training event you wish to attend in order to reserve a spot. Unless otherwise noted, HDFF accepts payments by bank transfer only. For participants needing visas to enter Thailand, HDFF will provide the requisite invitation letter after receiving payment of course fees. In the case that a participant is not in a country with a Thai embassy, the participant will have to arrange travel on their own to the nearest Thai embassy. This may require extra days of travel and expenses. Please take these factors into account when registering for a training and planning your trip to Thailand. It is therefore advisable to pay course fees as soon as possible in order to receive an invitation letter.
