This November, PDI’s summer training courses were approved to be part of POTI’s Certificate of Training in United Nations Peace Support Operations program!
POTI’s advanced-level certificate program offers students the opportunity to acquire a solid foundation of knowledge by combining the convenience of distance training with the benefits of in-person classroom instruction. At the Peace Operations Training Institute (POTI), we strive to “take the distance out of distance learning.” The POTI self-paced curriculum is available in English, French, and Spanish, and is open to all students interested in peacekeeping and humanitarian relief; there are no educational or professional prerequisites for enrolment. We have the most experience providing online distance learning about peace support, humanitarian relief, and security operations to individuals worldwide. Each year we support over 100,000 new enrolments.
The POTI curriculum contains courses such as: An Introduction to the United Nations System; Peacekeeping and International Conflict Resolution; Gender Issues in Peacekeeping; and International Humanitarian Law. Students access their course materials, exams, and other resources through a personalized virtual classroom, and upon successful completion of each course students receive a Certificate of Completion from POTI.
