Pre-Training Checklist


This document includes a checklist of items to perform or have ready before the training module is delivered. Some adaptations may be necessary if the module is combined with other training modules or delivered virtually.


  • Five flipcharts (preferably self-sticking, so that they can be displayed on a wall)
  • 20 markers (thick writing style and in a variety of colors)
  • LCD Projector
  • HDMI and VGA video cables
  • USB drive with video files and PDFs of Handouts and Activity Prompts (in case of internet problems)


  • Pre- and Post-test (two copies for each training participant)
  • Part A Handout #1
  • Part A Handout #2
  • Part A Handout #3
  • Part A Handout #4
  • Part C Handout


  • Ensure that all training participants have ESRI user accounts and are assigned to the correct role. If not, collect the information from the partner and submit the information to Cadasta’s Tech team for creation
  • If you are bringing sample devices for the training, ensure that the devices have a full battery charge
  • Download a screen mirror app onto the phone, tablet or computer you plan to use for training and test the functionality to ensure that it works
  • Log into the Cadasta Platform on the device you plan to use for the live demo using the trainer username credentials to remove any surveys, base maps, or other content that have been previously downloaded that is not needed for this module and/or may be confusing to participants if they see it on the screen
  • Be sure to inform Cadasta colleagues on the program and tech teams of the training dates and location; with one or more team members identified to offer troubleshooting support
  • Ask the organization to be trained about the kinds of smartphones and/or tablet devices that they plan to use for training; ensure that these devices meet our technology recommendations and offer equipment suggestions if needed
  • Work with the partner organization to secure a training location; ideal locations have strong internet connectivity and have enough space for small group breakouts
  • Communicate with the training group frequently, beginning multiple weeks before the training, to provide instructions on how to access their user account, download items ahead of time, give them a preview of the training agenda, and other logistic details
