Civil Registration and Vital Statistics Systems - Advanced Level (Facilitated)

Registration Ends Before:  July 09th, 2018
Civil registration (CR) is the recording of vital events in a person’s life (e.g., birth, death) and is a fundamental function of the national government. Birth registration establishes an individual’s legal identity at birth. Having a legal identity, name, nationality, proof of age, and the related are important human rights and enables individuals to exercise their rights (e.g., to vote) and enjoy various government, social, and private services. Vital statistics (VS) are statistics on these vital events and of the persons concerned. The availability of reliable and up-to-date VS depends on the level of development of CR. Having an effective CRVS system is critical for planning and monitoring programs across several sectors. Yet, over 110 low- and middle-income countries have deficient CRVS systems. This course provides practical tools and approaches to achieving 21st century state-of-the-art CRVS systems that are linked to identity management systems and tailored to local contexts.

Completion of Modules 1-3 (Basic Level in the self-paced format https://olc.worldbank.org/content/civil-registration-and-vital-statistics-systems-self-paced) is a pre-requisite for the Facilitated format. The duration of the course is 6 weeks. Learners will receive an Advanced Level Certificate after successfully completing Module 5 (birth registration & adoption), Module 6 (death registration), plus three additional modules of the learner’s choice (4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, or 13).

Both the 1st class (September 11 to October 20, 2017) and 2nd class (February 5 to March 16, 2018) were a great success. The next class will be held from July 9 to August 17, 2018. Enrollment begins May 2018.

Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you very much for your kind provision of such helpful Courses especially for Regions like Africa and my country Ethiopia and others that are coming to the formal and standardize forms of CRVS system by reorienting the former traditional ways of service provision. personally appreciate for such remarkable courses and I covered all the course evaluation except Module 11 Lesson 2 due to its blockage and the discussion & assignment parts because of time Shortage and network barriers. But yet there is no certification like basic courses I had taken.Yet I am looking to get the Advanced Level certification based on my evaluation request. Thank you.
