• Welcome


    In the Humanitarian Field Manager course, SMC combines the groundbreaking online learning programme for humanitarian managers, FIELD (created by Save the Children, UK and World Vision) with thematic webinars for reflection and experience sharing related to your partnership with SMC/Sida.

    The online course is available in ENGLISH and ARABIC.



    You will earn a certificate from SMC visualising the thematics covered 
    and the time invested, and HPpass digital badges from the Field Programme to validate your learning. The course lasts for 10 weeks with an approximate time investment of 5 hours/week, a total duration of 50 hours.                                                                                                   Welcome to this SMC learning initiative! 

    • Is this course for me?

      of response in your organisation?!
