However, material can be used by anyone wanting to get information about PEFA methodology.
PEFA training and PFM courses do not have the same purpose. PEFA training may be considered as a part of a PFM course, but is specifically a tool helping in PFM diagnostics. One needs at least some basic PFM skills to understand PEFA. There are many PFM aspects which are not dealt with by PEFA, or which may need detailed (drill down) approaches. A PFM course may include a PEFA module, but will deal with many other aspects.
Yes, PEFA training material is a public good available for dissemination, and is totally free.
Costs depends on the circumstances, but usually three elements should be considered, namely (i) event and venue management (ii) cost of the training facilitation team (iii) participants’ logistical costs .The PEFA Secretariat, when providing advice or contributing to delivering a training event, does not charge for its input.

No, it depends on many factors and circumstances, such as skills and number of participants, time available, being a core PEFA course or not etc.
However, experience shows that a full PEFA course needs at least 2 days. Case studies, which are essential to understand PEFA methodology, should be included as much as possible. Additional time for experience sharing is usually useful and well appreciated.
No, the PEFA program does not offer any PEFA training certification, nor of trainers delivering PEFA courses or of participants who have completed a course. Nevertheless, an attestation of attendance may be delivered by the organizing entity if desired.
It is a question of circumstance. We recommend participation in the order of 20-30 persons, as we suggest to allocate substantial course time to exercises by small groups, which cannot easily be managed for larger audiences.
We provide materials in three main languages: English (reference language), French and Spanish. We are open to stock ad hoc translations in other languages (please share with us!), but we cannot take responsibility for the adequacy of translations for such other languages.
