The courses are delivered through the internet using distance learning technologies that allow interaction between participants and WTO tutors. Government officials from developing countries can participate in the WTO on-line training regardless of their work location.

The inaugural course is entitled "Introduction to the WTO and its Basic Principles" and will be held in English. The objective of the course is to familiarize participants with the World Trade Organization, the multilateral trading system and its legal framework.

Future courses will cover a range of WTO topics. The WTO eTraining activity is meant to greatly extend the reach of WTO training activities currently being offered to developing country trade officials through conventional classroom courses and seminars.
