IPT Core Course for Peace Builders

The ENTRi certified CORE COURSE comprises theoretical inputs and practical exercises tailored to the realities in the field. All modules enhance interpersonal skills, highlight the importance of active involvement in the host society, and promote a reflective and critical approach. Junior professionals benefit particularly as they get the opportunity to reflect on their own mission readiness and motivation.

Modules include peace-building, cultural awareness, cross-cultural communication, conflict analysis, methods of third party intervention, mediation, human rights, democratisation, organised crime, personal safety, field orientation, mine awareness, first aid, gender and peace-building, stress management, and working with trauma.

Practical exercises include a workshop on project management, map reading, navigation,  drive training, a mine trail, a Complex Simulation Exercise held outdoors and multiple case studies.

Faculty is drawn from a pool of resource persons who combine theoretical knowledge with extensive practical field experience.
