The Claremont Evaluation Center provides world-class practical and theoretical training workshops in evaluation and applied research.

This longstanding series, taught by leading academics and seasoned practitioners, is made even more accessible by highly interactive online webcasts. Previous years have consistently brought hundreds of participants to Claremont from across the globe, representing an exciting cross-section of the private and public sectors.
