Get a Bioforce diploma at your own pace
Are you interested in the “Humanitarian Programme Manager” diploma course but unable to attend this several-week-long training programme?
Or have you already participated in one of our open training courses and would now like to hone your skills further?
The “Humanitarian Programme Manager” diploma course consists of 6 open training courses, followed by a 6-month workbased learning in the field with an NGO. A “Coordinateur de projet de la solidarité internationale” diploma is then awarded by the Bioforce Institute: this level I qualification (equivalent to a five-year higher education diploma) is registered by the French National Record of Professional Qualifications.
You can now get this diploma at your own pace by spreading out the training courses over up to 4,5 years:
- Attend the 6 competency-based open training courses (3 years to attend all 6 courses): Introduction to the aid sector, Managing people and organizations, Managing programmes and projects, Managing security, Managing finance and funding, Training of trainers for the aid sector
- Go out on a 6-month workbased learning in the field with an NGO (within 18 months following the end of the last course you attend)
The diploma that is awarded to you in the end is the exact same as the one awarded to participants of the “regular” diploma course.
