General Secretary Birgitte Qvist-Sørensen would like to personally welcome you to the organisation and introduce how this training will help you explore the identity of DCA and where you and your role fit in. 

    You must complete all six modules and the exit questionnaire to generate your certificate for this mandatory course for all staff. Please start with the video below and enjoy the course. 


    • How to navigate through the following modules

      Important! To generate your certificate of completion, you will have to finish all 6 modules and then answer questions based on the course in the exit questionnaire.

        • Updates to this Site

          DCA is a vibrant and dynamic organisation with many moving parts. While the vast majority of the content of this training is so fundamental to our organisational culture, it is unlikely to change in significant ways, there will be a need to update the material here to reflect updates to policies and shifts in personnel.
