“We want to guide them on what being a technical delegate means, to give them the ITU templates involved and useful in the performance of such, and highlight the key points that can be important for them,” said Rachel Ribo, ITU facilitator from Philippines.

Course content is mainly based on past events with many practical sessions using videos and photos. “The aim is to learn from past events and look for solutions to always put safety and fairness first.” said Melody Tan, ITU facilitator from Malaysia.
