The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) offers a wealth of learning opportunities and resources to our National Societies, volunteers, partners and the general public. Discover them below.
IFRC Learning Platform
The IFRC Learning Platform is our global online learning hub for all. It supports the personal and professional development of our volunteers and staff worldwide and helps improve public knowledge of important humanitarian issues.
On the platform, you will find high-quality, multilingual learning opportunities developed by Red Cross and Red Crescent experts as well as resources from other humanitarian organizations.
Resources include self-paced online courses, video playlists and games—on topics ranging from first aid and healthy lifestyles through to supporting people on the move and disaster law. There are also various social learning tools, including our 'communities of practice'—virtual groups of experts and people interested in specific humanitarian topics in which to share knowledge and learning.
