Training is available on many of the services and systems provided by the NCI Agency. The Catalogue also explains the traditional “bidding” procedure for seat allocation as well as the costs for each of the courses.

Funding principles for 2018 training:
As NCI Agency is transforming to be customer funded, training costs need to be covered. Baselined Courses ID's from A0004 till A2600 are pre-paid by existing contracts (CSLA/POW etc). The iterations/ classes of these courses are planned and seat biddings can be addressed to already planned classes (see STUDABA user guide). For additional iterations or seats, bids can be uploaded in STUDABA, E&T will group these requests, when SLA or contract is in place the seats can be confirmed.
Bids for seats or iterations of Courses ID's from A3000 till A9100 will be processed by E&T SL TCG. Courses can be delivered after price coordination and financial commitments. At the start of bidding process, these courses are only planned on a fixed day (3rd of Sept 2018), the dates, locations of delivery and number of iterations for these courses will be adapted depending on the number of bids.
Some courses are earmarked as MTT (Mobile Training Team) or specific program funded (see location info in STUDABA). All customers can bid for seats of these trainings however seats will only be allocated based upon seats available.
