You’re welcome to openly share your experience in the DHIS2 community. More info about the event and nominated helpful members at the end of the post.

Many users who faced issues and discussed them with the community were very helpful in finding bugs. These bug hunters create Jira issues (with link to the CoP post) and support the development of DHIS2.

November 2023 - DHIS2 Community Challenges

I know the response was a tie (50%, 50%) but if your answer was “Courses delivered locally by HISP groups in multiple languages using standardized regional materials” then that’s the correct answer. The DHIS2 Level 1 Academies are organized by HISP Oslo and HISP groups for in-person training whereas the courses that are delivered virtually through online self-paced courses are the ones that you can sign-up for anytime at academy.dhis2.org.

If you are interested in participating in one of the in-person academies, check the schedule (Academy Schedule - DHIS2) and please share with the community your experience if you do attend one! :slight_smile:
