DOST-PCAARRD has been conducting non-degree training courses for its partners in the National Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development Network (NAARRDN). The aim is to  strengthen competencies of research managers, researchers, and scholars  in the implementation and management of agriculture, aquatic and  natural resources (AANR) R&D initiatives. This is done through the development and conduct of strategically identified enhancement courses,  such as those on R&D management and technology-based trainings.

Through the years PCAARRD has built a rich collection of training materials. Based on these, the Council developed this online training  platform to maximize the utility of these materials while providing interested stakeholders the opportunity to take advantage and learn at their own pace.

These materials are grouped into the following sectors:
