Build solid, practical knowledge of peacekeeping and related topics

The Peace Operations Training Institute (POTI) offers e-learning courses on current topics in peace support, humanitarian relief, and security operations. Our training provides the flexibility and accessibility for students to study at their own pace. Our curriculum aims to build solid, practical knowledge of United Nations peacekeeping operations and related topics, with course materials written by former Force Commanders, Military Advisers to DPKO, experienced peacekeepers, published scholars, and experts in their fields.

Peacekeeping operations and the challenges faced by peacekeepers are diverse and complex. Desde el principio, hemos cumplido con la demanda de proporcionar formación asequible y adecuada en línea para personal de paz. When you study with POTI, you can learn wherever you are, whenever your schedule permits. El Instituto de Formación de las Operaciones de Paz (POTI) se esfuerza para cortar la distancia entre el estudiante y su tema de estudio y ofrecer a sus estudiantes en todo el mundo una experiencia interactiva, profunda y valiosa.

This is how POTI training works:

  1. Create an account.
  2. Register for the course of your choice.
  3. Download the course (PDF) and study the materials at your convenience. Watch video introductions and webinars from course authors and test your knowledge with self-scoring quizzes at the end of each lesson.
  4. After studying, take the 50 question multiple choice exam. You have two opportunities to successfully complete the exam with a score of 75% or better.
  5. Submit your exam for grading and receive your results immediately. Students who pass receive a Certificate of Completion and can choose to have their name displayed on the Honour Roll.
