L'Institut de formation aux opérations de paix (POTI) propose des cours en ligne sur des questions d'actualité en matière de soutien de la paix, d'aide humanitaire et d'opérations de sécurité. Notre formation flexible et accessible, permet aux étudiants d'étudier à leur propre rythme.

Peacekeeping operations and the challenges faced by peacekeepers are diverse and complex. We have been meeting the demand for quality, affordable online peacekeeping training from day one. When you study with POTI, you can learn wherever you are, whenever your schedule permits. At the Peace Operations Training Institute, we work to take the distance out of distance learning and provide our students worldwide with a learning experience that is rich, interactive, and meaningful.

This is how POTI training works:

  1. Créer un nouveau compte.
  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.
