Basic Course on Anti-Corruption
United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

The online course has been developed by UNDP the Democratic Governance Group, Bureau for Development Policy, and the Learning Resources Centre of the Office of Human Resources, Bureau of Management, with support from practitioners and offices around the world.

The course builds on UNDP’s accumulated knowledge and experience on anti-corruption programming and has benefited from substantive contributions from partners and donors including UNODC, U4, NORAD, AusAID and UN Staff College in Turin.

The course is divided into four lessons. These include:

  1. Concepts and definitions of corruption and anti-corruption.
  2. Linkages between anti-corruption and development.
  3. Norms, standards and frameworks at the global, regional and country level to fight corruption.
  4. UN’s niche in anti-corruption programming using UN Convention against Corruption as an entry point.




Doing Business Without Bribery
Transparency International UK (TI-UK)

This free online training module has been updated in June 2013 and provides best practice anti-bribery training, and enables companies to benchmark their own training programmes.

Doing Business Without Bribery is a self-study e-learning course with which the participant will learn how to prevent and resist bribery in their business and comply with bribery laws. The course starts with an overview of bribery, followed by a set of in-depth realistic scenarios that require the participant to make decisions in familiar situations, and ends with a summary of bribery laws and offences. The course features clear and practical advice from TI-UK throughout.

The course has been produced by TI-UK with the support of FTI Consulting and Skillcast.



Corruption Prevention
United Nations Public Administration Network (UNPAN)

The online training course “Corruption Prevention” was developed by the Division for Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA), in cooperation with the UNDP’s Global Programme on Anti-corruption for Development Effectiveness (PACDE). It complements UNDP’s online course on Basics on Anti-corruption prevention.

The course focuses on the prevention roles of legal and regulatory frameworks, effective institutions and citizens. There is a final scored assessment at the end of the course, but there are unscored assessment tasks throughout the course that focus on the key learning outcomes of the course. References for further reading on key topics are also included.

Topics Included:

  1. Corruption and Prevention
  2. Corruption in Public Administration.
  3. Corruption Prevention Methods
  4. Corruption Prevention Practices




Identifying and Avoiding Corruption in the Infrastructure Sector
Global Infrastructure Anti-Corruption Centre (GIACC)

GIACC has developed this on-line training module in order to help users:

  1. achieve a better understanding of corruption in the infrastructure sector,
  2. avoid corruption,
  3. identify corruption,
  4. deal with corruption appropriately if confronted with it.

This module can be used by individuals, and also by professional institutions and organisations as part of their formal training for their members and employees. It is aimed primarily at middle and senior management, particularly those involved in procurement, tendering, sales and marketing, design, project management, claims management, commercial management, financial management, legal, compliance, and internal audit.

The module focuses on the infrastructure sector. Therefore, corruption examples are based on examples from this sector. However, the principles would apply to all sectors, so people from other sectors would also benefit from this module.

This training can be used by organisations and individuals wherever they are located or working as, although the law will vary between jurisdictions, the module covers general principles and examples which have worldwide applicability.

The module is designed to be undertaken by individuals working by themselves on-line. However, an organisation could project the web-pages onto a screen, and use the whole or part of the module as part of a training workshop.
