What training is available for Umoja?

A ‘blended learning’ approach is used to deliver training. To accommodate different learning requirements and facilitate knowledge transfer, the Umoja training programme integrates:

  1. Computer-Based Training (All UN Staff)

  2. Instructor-Led Courses (Umoja end users only)

  3. Simulation Learning (Umoja end users only)

  4. Job Aids (Umoja end users only)

  5. Hands-on Practice Sessions (Umoja end users only)

For Umoja Foundation, Computer Based Training consists of Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 courses:

  • Level 1 courses are introduction/overviews of how different functional areas work in Umoja.

  • Level 2 courses are navigation courses that guide users through the fundamentals of getting around the Umoja system.

  • Level 3 courses are advanced, transactional-level and intended to be studied in an instructor-led environment. The courses also contain links to simulations which can only be viewed while browsing on the UN network.

Level 1 and 2 courses are prerequisites for the advanced Level 3 courses. All UN Staff can view Level 1 and Level 2 courses (for Foundation only) in the Training section of this website. However, Umoja end users must complete course assessments for Level 1 and 2 courses via inspira in order to be certified and complete their prerequisite requirements for Level 3 courses.

Level 3 courses are available to Staff identified as Umoja end users. Staff Members with specific Enterprise Roles in Umoja will receive instructions on course requirements and their Instructor Led Training schedule approximately 4-6 weeks prior to deployment in their location.
