International Labour Office, Geneva (Switzerland).
The International Labour Office (ILO) is in the process of developing an Inter-Regional Training Information System (IRTIS) for developing countries. This system aims at the introduction of common standards and techniques, in all regions and at the national level, for processing and retrieval of information on training. This report elaborates a medium-term plan (for the years 1984-1989) for the development and implementation of IRTIS. The plan covers the following areas: (1) guidelines for the development and maintenance of eight specialized databases (training materials, institutions, programs for trainers, legislation, research activities, expertise, sources of information, forthcoming events), including technical specifications, methodological tools and standards, and organizational framework; (2) a description of the network functions, procedures, methods, and plans for their development; (3) a description of computing system requirements covering equipment, programs, training of information personnel and information users; (4) the scheduling of development operations; (5) an analysis of resources requirements; and (6) the features and facilities of the system. The report also discusses policy issues and future technical tasks. (KC)
