The Basic Course prepares experts for deployment to UN, OSCE, or EU peace operations. The course supports the development of professional and personal skills required to successfully work in a peace operation or civilian crisis management mission.
The curriculum includes interactive, practical exercises based on a scenario that reflects mission realities. The course provides the space for participants to reflect critically on the work of peace operations and encourages open discussions in the spirit of peer learning.
The aim of the Basic Course is to provide future experts current knowledge, skills and attitudes needed in the experts’ work.
Experts looking to be deployed to a civilian crisis management mission and who fulfil the requirements of the position they could be recruited for. The course is for all staff irrespective of their professional background, what role they would play in the mission or what level of the mission they would work at.
CMC Finland covers the tuition, meals and accommodation costs for those participants chosen to enter the expert roster. The participation fee for non-roster members is 600 €. This covers tuition, meals and accommodation during the course.
