Since its foundation the Academy conducted more than 5500 training events for social target groups. A total of 124,000 people or approximately 10% of the adult population of Mongolia has participated in these trainings.
The Basic Education Program was revised in 2004 to incorporate participatory education methods. The result was the creation of two programs, General Education and Participation Support Training.
