Pedagogical Training and Academic Development Center

The Training and Development Center (TDC) is an academic foundation established in 2008. It is directly related to the Vice President's Office for Scientific Affairs and Post Graduate Studies. The center provides organizational and professional development to the University of Duhok (UoD), local academic and governmental institutions, NGOs and surrounding communities in the region. This is achieved by offering both academic and technical training programs, workshops, and seminars. All our programs and workshops are delivered by professionals and academics from UoD and other local and international institutions. Upon the completion of courses and workshops, stamped certificates by UoD are granted.
