Explosive Ordnance Risk Education (EORE)

Every year, a large number of civilians are killed and injured by explosive ordnance. Explosive ordnance is one of the lasting consequences of armed conflict.

Our mission: develop a series of e-learning courses on the basic principles that frame the risks associated with explosive ordnance. The aim is to enable the adoption of best practice in the design/implementation of more effective and efficient EOD operations.

The course is aimed at mine action professionals as well as the general public who may have no prior knowledge of the subject. The content is accessible and inclusive, taking into account gender and accessibility for people with disabilities. A large number of audio testimonies illustrate actions and their impact on the ground.

Client testimonial

“Finding and partnering with eSkills has been a tremendous privilege, and we could not be more pleased with the results.
We decided to hire eSkills because the company offers a wide range of services that covered the entire project’s design and development – from pedagogical and instructional design expertise, to sketch artists and video production. In addition, the team took our original concept and accompanied us through a highly professional and human / user focused process.
They approached their work with enthusiasm and urgency, listened to and translated our needs into the design and production, and did so in a cost-effective manner, and always with great flexibility, patience and genuine interest for the topic.”
