ORISE maintains extensive experience in instructional design, graphic art, multimedia development, cultural competency and global health. Customized educational programs are available for agencies and organizations needing specialized training.

When appropriate, ORISE works alongside a network of internationally-recognized communication experts to help conduct courses and workshops.
