|IRES Training Application Guidelines|
STEP I: ONLINE APPLICATION
The applicant completes an IRES Online Application . The application is then reviewed by IRES training department. The review committee may accept or decline an application guided by the elligiblity requirements for every training.
As part of IRES requirement, every participant completes a Compulsory Training Registration form . The form should be SIGNED and STAMPED by an authorized person from the sponsoring institution. (Note that applicants will not be enrolled in any training without submitting this form).
The duly SIGNED and STAMPED application form should be submitted 21 days before the commencement date of the course being applied for by mail or email (see address details below).
Organizations that send five participants to this course are entitled to send a sixth person without paying the course fee. IRES has established this arrangement in recognition of the special needs of sponsoring organizations that wish to send large groups to the course.
Upon receipt of the duly completed compulsory Training Registration form, IRES sends out an Admission Letter which is accompanied by a Training Fees Invoice.
We offer a standard fee alternative (Alternative I) which covers the course tuition, training materials, accommodation (6), breakfast (5), two break refreshments and lunch during the training, study visits and all dinners. Participants will cater for their own travel expenses, visa application, insurance, and other personal expenses. Participants who wish to seek own accommodation can choose course fee Alternative II (Without Accomodation)
However, applicants are highly encouraged to stay at the hotel where the trainings are held to benefit from evening practicals review usually after dinner. The rooms’ rate is approximately US$ 50 per day. Note that this is a negotiated rate between IRES and the hosting Hotel management.
STEP IV: TRAINING FEES PAYMENT
Sponsoring organisations/participants pays for the training fees through IRES bank account as indicated on the Training Fees Invoice they have received. Payments should be made 14 days prior to the training commencement date. Participants who wish to pay at the registration desk, during the first day of the training, should make the request in writing 7 days prior to the training commencement date
Payment for the all courses includes a registration fee, which is non-refundable, and equals 15% of the total sum of the course fee.

Even though Kenya is a safe country enjoying a very low crime rate; it is highly advisable to purchase a TRAVEL INSURANCE POLICY prior to your arrival at our programme at the Indepth Training centre. As we have a very high amount of participants, we are limited in any assistance through our insurance in those rare cases of loss or theft. Therefore we recommend that your policy covers the loss or damage of any valuables you may wish to bring with you such as a laptop computer, camera, glasses, jewellery etc. IIRES DO NOT compensate participants for loss or damage of private property.
Prior to travelling to any domestic or international destination, it is always advisable to consider investing in a travel insurance policy to ensure any loss or theft of your personal possessions on your way to your destination.
Baggage & Money Cover
Insurance for personal possessions is vital when travelling, and while most insurance policies will compensate very well for lost or delayed baggage, they may be slightly more limiting when claiming for personal possessions or cash. Most travel insurance policies do not provide "new for old" as is standard with most household insurance, rather, they cover the value of the item at the time it is lost or stolen.
Credit Cards and Cash
Your insurance policy should cover the loss or theft of cash up to a certain value. It is recommended that you travel with an international credit card with you and carry only a small amount of cash at all times to minimise your risk. Credit cards may be covered under your household contents insurance, and some have their own insurance policies associated with them. These insurance policies may be slightly limited when it comes to travel so be sure to check that you have adequate insurance and take out extra if you need to.
Most travel insurance policies are fairly restrictive when it comes to the upper limit that you can claim for a single item. It is recommended that you do not take any extremely valuable items with you on a trip abroad. If you must take valuables then most household contents insurance policies will have a clause for items briefly taken out of the country. Taking out extra cover on your household contents insurance is a good plan for valuable items such as a mobile phone, digital cameras, laptop computers and jewellery. This kind of insurance may also provide "new for old" cover on your valuable items.
Remember - only take valuable items if absolutely necessary.
Documents vital for travel such as your passport or tickets are very often covered by travel insurance policies but loss of these documents may cause severe delays to your trip or return home so be sure to take special care of them. If you lose your passport while in Kenya, report it immediately to the IRES Officials. You will be required to apply for a replacement passport - remember to take some identification with you as you will have to prove your identity before you will be issued with a replacement. It is recommended to make photocopies of your passport before your trip. These copies are to be kept separately and not in the same hand luggage as your passport.

“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. “Aristotle
