RTPCs are generalist training courses set at Level 2 of the Progressive Learning Strategy (PLS). They are intermediate courses specifically designed for government officials who have already undertaken Level 1 PLS training (E-learning "Introduction to the WTO" or Geneva-based "Introduction Course for LDCs") and who want to learn more about the WTO and its Agreements and explore the links between the latter and regional trade matters. The regional context is provided through a partnership with a University from the country where the course is held and the participation of regional academics and policy specialists who co-lecture with officials from the WTO. The RTPCs objectives are twofold: institutional capacity building through the partnership with regional universities; and train government officials with a view to deepen their understanding of the WTO Agreements and strengthen their capacity to undertake WTO work. RTPCs are targeted to government officials from developing countries, LDCs, economies in transition and countries in accession. Being a generalist training activity the course is open to participants from various ministries provided their work is linked to WTO issues. The RTPC for Caribbean countries will be held in Bridgetown, Barbados in partnership with the Centre for Trade Policy and Law (CTPL) at the Shridath Ramphal Centre, University of West Indies (UWI).
