CIAT Training Program Complementing and Strengthening The Tax Administration Programs

Since 2004, the Inter-American Center of Tax Administrations has been holding virtual, at-a-distance educational activities on Taxation issues. The first of these courses, the Taxation Program began with a total of 49 participants from several Latin American countries; all of them tax administration officials. To date, after six editions of this course, there has been an estimated 30% increase in enrolment, which figure exceeds the Center’s initial expectations. The idea of designing at-a-distance educational courses is based on the Strategic Directions of the CIAT Strategic Plan, particularly the one dealing with training for the member countries. The experience acquired by CIAT up till now has allowed it to satisfactorily achieve one of its main objectives: the development of a permanent training program for the benefit of the tax administrations officials of its member countries. Currently the CIAT training program constitutes one of the Center’s leading programs as instrument for fulfilling its strategic objectives. The Executive Secretariat’s operational capacity is a relevant aspect in scheduling and carrying out its training actions. This includes direct actions by the ES staff as well joint actions scheduled and carried out by means of inter-institutional agreements. The Executive Secretariat has a Tax Training Coordination Office under the Directorate of Tax Studies, which is in charge of the execution of plans and projects determined by the organization.
