Our certificates

The Centre issues three types of certificates – Certificates of Participation, Certificates of Achievement, and Diplomas – on the basis of learning hours and credits. This flexible system takes into account the diversity of our participants and the range of training activities that we offer. 

Learning hours comprise hours of instruction, distance learning, and self-learning, and 30 learning hours equal one credit. Participants will complete assessments to verify whether they have achieved learning outcomes.

After you complete a course, you can add your badge and certificate to your email signature, LinkedIn profile, and personal website.

Participants that register for and complete at least 80% of a course that lasts at least one hour will receive a Certificate of Participation. One learning hour does not lead to any credits.

These certificates are signed by the Activity Manager. If the course was designed in collaboration with the ILO, the certificate may be signed by the responsible ILO official as well.

Both face-to-face and distance learning activities are eligible.

Selected participants that complete at least 90% of a course that lasts between 60 and 300 learning hours, including a final assessment or project, will receive a certificate of achievement. Participants may earn between 2 and 10 credits. 

Participants must meet certain requirements just to take these courses, which may include prior professional and/or academic experience, a personal statement, or something else. 

After the course, they must also complete an assessment in the form of a written or oral test, a presentation of an action plan, the preparation of a research proposal, or similar. A passing grade is at least 60%. Participants with a “no pass” grade may still receive a Certificate of Participation.

The certificate will specify the total number of learning hours and are signed by both the Programme Manager and the Director of Training. If the course was designed in collaboration with the ILO, the certificate may be signed by the responsible ILO official as well. 

Selected participants that complete at least 90% of a single- or multi-track training activity that lasts a minimum of 300 learning hours, including a capstone project, will receive a Diploma. Participants may earn 10 or more credits.

Participants must meet certain requirements just to take these courses, which may include prior professional and/or academic experience, a personal statement, or something else. 

At the end of each course, participants must also complete an assessment in the form of a written or oral test, a presentation of an action plan, the preparation of a research proposal, or similar. A passing grade is at least 60%. 

Diplomas may entail a single training course (single-track) or a combination of several training courses (multi-track). Multi-track Diplomas must comprise courses that provide a Certificate of Achievement, and may include courses from different teams.

Both modalities conclude with a Capstone Project, which must be completed within a three-year period. The project consists of a written assignment and allows participants to apply the skills and knowledge acquired throughout the learning journey. Time spent working on the project may count toward learning hours, from a minimum of 60 to a maximum of 120 hours.

All Diplomas are signed by the Director of Training.
