Globally, one of the foremost multilateral treaties established by the United Nations (UN) to verify nuclear explosion activities around the world is the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test–Ban Treaty (CTBT). The Treaty bans any nuclear explosions anywhere by anyone on the planet. Compliance to the nuclear test ban requires understanding of the Treaty’s relevance and contribution to international peace and security. CTBT educational materials as a source of information are available on the CTBTO web-portals, give focus on "building and maintaining the necessary awareness and capacity in the technical, scientific, legal and political aspects of the Treaty and its verification regime" for enriched knowledge. These educational materials are accessible to technical staff and the public through various e-learning courses and programmes that serve as useful tools to provide the requisite knowledge and understanding of the Treaty issues. Regular participation in CTBTO organized courses such as 2013 Diplomacy and Public Policy; 2012 Advanced Science; 2012 Intensive Policy; 2011 Advanced Science; and 2011 CTBT Introductory, help to sensitize and stimulate broader understanding of the Treaty and its verification regime which aided the successful conducts of internal training at NDC-Ghana.
