NRGI has developed training courses and materials that meet the learning needs of civil society advocates, government officials, journalists and parliamentarians working toward improving the management of oil, gas and minerals. NRGI's materials are tailored to the learning styles of adults, with a focus on learning through participants' own experiences, sustained debates and interaction. The training materials present balanced views and facilitate debates about the pros and cons of policy decisions.

Our materials include courses and modules to help others prepare effective trainings on the management and oversight of oil, gas and mining, agendas and outlines from regional knowledge hub courses on natural resource governance, global advanced courses offered in partnership with the School of Public Policy at the Central European University and the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford and information from country-specific courses from NRGI in-country trainings.
