In order to guarantee the respect of the procedures, the knowledge of the Standards and Criteria and the consistency of the outcome of the evaluation procedures, the CTI organizes training sessions for its members and experts on a regular basis.
There are two training sessions for new CTI members before they sit on their first expert panel and at least one training session per year for all members and experts and one dedicated to the student experts. These training sessions include a specific part on internal quality assurance.
During each plenary session, a “methodology” session is devoted to reminding members of certain aspects of the CTI’s missions.
The CTI’s annual conference is also an important means for updating information on standards, criteria, procedures for the CTI members, experts and special advisers.
