Customised Training

CARIMAC develops customised training programmes and workshops for companies, professional associations and other affinity groups. The topics covered in our workshops are drawn from our undergraduate and graduate academic programmes as well as from our Summer School offerings. Clients also may suggest new topics or combine topics from more than one of our courses and programmes.

Each course can be offered on-site at the University, at the client’s offices or at a location of their choosing, or via distance education.


The duration of the courses ranges from short, half-day workshops, to 60-hour, semester long courses. 

Sample topics include: 

  •  Media Training
  •  Effective Communication
  •  Advocacy Communication
  •  Public Speaking 


The clients for whom we have created custom workshops include the following: 

  • Associations of journalists in Haiti, Guyana, Jamaica
  • The Caribbean Disaster and Emergency Response Agency
  • The Caribbean Media Workers Association
  • The Caribbean Single Market and Economy, Barbados Office
  • The Dominica Broadcasting Corporation
