As part of eu-LISA’s key activities, the Agency is responsible for developing, implementing and coordinating training on the technical use of the large-scale IT systems in the Justice and Home Affairs (JHA) domain to IT experts and other law enforcement officials from the Member States that manage the IT systems.

The training offer of the Agency includes hands-on sessions, live demo presentations, large and small scale workshops and webinars. These focus on the use of Eurodac, SIS and VIS as well as the upcoming EES, ETIAS and ECRIS-TCN systems and the Interoperability between them. Further to traditional classroom training, eu-LISA offers various profile-based online courses for self-paced learning. The eu-LISA Learning Management System (LMS), the Agency’s online learning platform, supports the extended online e-Learning offer, providing diverse learning styles, with a dynamic package design that involves audio, visual elements and the possibility of active learning too.

In close cooperation with the National Contact Point (NCP) network, the Agency aligns its training activities to the needs of the Member States. The NCP Network actively contributes to the process of establishing training needs through an annual Training Needs Assessment exercise, and supports eu-LISA in the development and updating of training courses, methodologies, materials and tools.

Structured partnerships with other JHA European Union Agencies, such as CEPOL, Frontex and Europol, as well as the European Commission, play an essential role in fulfilling the Agency's objective to implement, coordinate and develop joint training activities for the Member States, thus supporting their efforts towards a safer Europe through technology.

Permission to access the training resources and learning portfolio in eu-LISA's LMS, is limited to Member State and Schengen Associated Country authorities (e.g. border management authorities, law enforcement officials, immigration and visa authorities, asylum authorities as well as their technical personnel), and coordinated by the National Contact Points appointed by the Member States.
