        High level initial and further staff training was one of the basic prerequisites for the establishment and development of Portage in Cyprus. This was why so many Seminars have been conducted in a relatively short period of time by members of the IPA, including a "train the trainers" Seminar, which led to a certain degree of self-sufficiency as far as training is concerned.

        Nowadays, the training of new home visitors and the continuous support and further training of the existing staff, is carried out by Cypriot trainers, while at the same time, the IPA sees prospects and examines the possibility of using Cyprus as a Regional Portage Staff Training Center.
