Judgment No. 3052
The complaint is dismissed.
"It is consistent case law that the Tribunal will not substitute its opinion for that of the Organisation unless the decision was taken without authority, shows some procedural or formal flaw or a mistake of fact or of law, overlooks some material fact, is an abuse of authority, or draws a clearly mistaken conclusion from the facts. [C]ourses of various levels for various subjects are a natural part of the work experience (continuous training), aimed at improving performance in a variety of areas. There is always room for growth and improvement, and enrolment in development classes does not automatically indicate a lack of basic knowledge."
