ISO Central Secretariat (ISO/CS) organizes training sessions, free of charge, for the staff of ISO members and professionals engaged in standards production activities each year in Geneva.
In order to provide training to ISO members hosting, or considering to host, secretariats of ISO/TCs and SCs – more specifically their appointed secretaries and their support staff – the majority of courses are organized as part of three dedicated ISO Secretaries' Weeks.
Each of the dedicated weeks will comprise 3 individual courses, in total spanning five days of training. Secretaries and their support staff are free to participate in one, two or three courses organized during a specific Secretaries' Week.
Please note: These dates have been recently modified.
