Specialized courses are also organized by IARC scientific groups, sometimes with the support of the Education and Training group and, in some instances co-organized with external partners and held at diverse locations throughout the world.
For example, courses on cancer registration have been organized as part of the framework of the Global Initiative for Cancer Registry Development in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (GICR). This regional training supports the establishment of regional hubs that will provide technical support for cancer registries, and the establishment of regional training programmes.

In addition, courses organized by the IARC Screening Group have led to the establishment of collaborative cervical cancer prevention training schools in India, Angola, Guinea, Tanzania, Brazil, and Peru that play an active role in training in their respective regions.
