The educational process is carried out according to the modular system from March to September. From the Omsk region, the regional team includes more than 10 representatives from regional ministries, the mayor’s office and municipal districts.
The first full-time stage of training took place in March of this year. In the interim periods between training modules, visits of regional teams to each other are provided for the exchange of managerial experience and demonstration of successful regional practices in creating a favorable investment climate.
