Demonstrate your skills and advance your career by earning one or more POST Certificates.

For each of the six areas of specialty, students are required to complete eight courses by passing each End-of-Course Examination with a minimum score of 75%. These include the same three common core for all, two electives, and three courses specific to their own POST Certificate. Track your current progress as you work towards earning a POST Certificate.

In addition, to earn the POST Certificate, students are required to pass a Comprehensive Examination (2 attempts allowed). Each student's Comprehensive Exam will consist of 80 questions pertaining equally to each of the eight courses completed.

Once the student has passed all eight courses as well as the Comprehensive Exam, the student will receive their POST Certificate, along with a transcript listing all completed courses and an official congratulatory letter.

Students may obtain their courses through any POTI program for which they are eligible. There is a fee of USD 50 for each POST Certificate to cover the review and verification that the student has completed all requirements, and the issuing of the Peace Operations Specialized Training Certificate. If you have any specific questions not addressed on the website, please contact POTI using the help desk system.
