“Sphere in Practice” online training and MOOC



Sphere’s newly released e-learning course “Sphere in Practice” supports students, humanitarian professionals and anyone who wishes to learn about humanitarian standards in an interactive and engaging way.

Sphere in Practice is free of charge; available in English, French, Spanish and Arabic; and is available in two formats: You can study at your own pace, completing all lessons in 8-10 hours in total, or attend a massive online open course (MOOC) which includes assignments, moderated discussion forums and interactive webinars (subject to availability). Being part of the MOOC will help you exchange with fellow students, discuss with expert practitioners, expand your network and make the most of your learning experience.

The online training is based on the 2018 edition of the Sphere Handbook and reflects the major challenges currently faced by the sector. It features realistic examples from complex and protracted crises, a range of settlement scenarios including urban settings, and covers many topics including Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA). Dynamic links to the Interactive Handbook will help you connect these scenarios to the guidance provided by Sphere standards.
