Usage Guidance

  • The metric is intended to capture the number of individuals that received training services (of any type) provided by the organization. Training may or may not be restricted to clients of the organization. This metric may be applicable for organizations operating in the microfinance, agriculture, or other sectors that provide training to clients and other community members.
  • Examples of training types, to footnote, could include: enterprises/business development, women's empowerment, educational services, etc.
  • Training may be fee-based or provided for free. Training of an organization's own employees is not included in this metric and can instead be captured by Employees Trained (OI4229).
