OADCPH is aware of the need to maintain and update the skills and knowledge of the various actors, professionals or not, involved in the field of rehabilitation, so that they continue to provide quality services, and thus guarantee the sustainability of rehabilitation centers.

Since 2013, OADCPH has been organizing continuing education for these different actors coming from the member countries and now has a catalog of more than 44 modules including: 30 modules for rehabilitation professionals, 9 modules for rehabilitation service managers and 5 modules for administrative staff.

The trainings are delivered by national and international experts specially selected by OADCPH according to a pre-established annual program reflecting the real needs for reinforcement identified by the actors themselves.

The organization and the  implementation of the trainings are done in partnership with the Ecole Nationale des Auxiliaires Médicaux de Lomé (ENAM-L) which provides its infrastructure (classroom and laboratories). On average, three (03) trainings are organized per year. The trainees receive a certificate at the end.
