The Liberia Institute of Public Administration (LIPA) has graduated over 230 students in various disciplines following eight weeks of intensive training at the institute in Monrovia.
During the ceremony at the University of Liberia Monrovia campus Friday, several students were awarded certificates in banking and finance, human resources management and monitoring and evaluation.
Others received certificates in performance management and procurement, public finance management, project planning and report writing and internal audit.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Deputy Director General for Research, Harris F. Tarnue, explained that the institute’s responsibility as it relates to training of professionals to enhance their performances during service delivery.
Tarnue noted that over the years the standard of training has improved with the support of development partners through the administration of regular and periodic training.
“We have had the opportunity over the period to ensure that all of our facilitators of regular training refresh them on new methodology of training delivery for participants who come to our courses,” he said.
Because of the rising standard of the program at LIPA, training activities have also increased from one circle per year to three training circles annually with an increasing number of participants, Tarnue said.
