This course draws on international best-practice guidelines to assess approaches to improve governance and management of contribution collection and enforcing compliance, with particular focus on institutional business processes and the role of information and communication technology (ICT).
This is one of seven ISSA Diploma training courses run in partnership with the ITC-ILO training institution, offered in an innovative e-learning format.
This specialized course enables you to join a virtual global network of social security practitioners flexibly and without the need to travel.
