OECD's self-paced training in taxation


» Back to Global Relations Programme


The OECD’s Global Relations Programme offers tax officials from developing countries the necessary training to tackle today’s most pressing challenges in international taxation. The self-paced training activities allow officials to learn about certain topics at their own pace and convenience, no matter in which time zone they are. These training products are offered free of charge in three formats:

E-learning courses: 45-120 minute online learning modules with animated videos which provide solid knowledge of key issues on a topic.

Recorded webinars: recordings of live webinars/ virtual classes and ad hoc presentations introducing the fundamentals of a topic.

Training capsules: 5-15 minute videos to raise awareness on emerging issues/initiatives and/or introduce basic relevant concepts.


E-Learning courses

In 2019, the Global Relations programme launched the first OECD e-learning project offering free online courses that cover various international taxation topics. Every year, new e-learning courses are developed and updated to meet the current needs from tax officials in developing countries. These interactive courses give participants a solid knowledge base on key topics of international taxation, providing an OECD certificate to those who complete them successfully. By the end of 2020, almost 20.000 officials used the OECD e-learning courses.

Registration of members of Government Agencies external to the Tax Administration

Therefore, the verification of officials of other Agencies outside the Tax Administration (e.g. customs), recently enabled, may take a little longer.
