A new e-learning course on the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS) is now live. The online course is available to access on Kaya, the Humanitarian Leadership Academy (HLA)'s new online learning platform. It was developed through a collaborative process with the HLA, the CHS Alliance, Groupe URD, IECAH and the Sphere Project.

Course content

The course is based on four scenarios and covers the history of the CHS, its structure and scope, the Nine Commitments, the principles underpinning it, links between the CHS and other standards, the responsibilities that the CHS places on humanitarian workers and organisations, and how individuals and organisations can apply the CHS.

Who should use the course?

The CHS online course is designed for anyone who wants to use the CHS in their work and takes approximately one hour to complete. It is offered free of charge - just register online at https://kayaconnect.org for access. It is currently available in English, and will be available in French, Spanish and Arabic in the coming months.
