IMF Institute Training at Internal Economics Training (IET), Washington, D.C., United States

The IMF Institute organizes internal economics training (IET) for IMF economists at HQ in Washington.

The IMF Institute selects countries to be invited to the courses.

However, they are eligible to attend training at HQ as regular participants. Attending as self-financed provides the same access to course content and activities, but all associated costs (accommodation, travel, and per diem) need to be covered by the sponsoring institution.
