UPEACE-HRC offers several customized courses to organizations and universities based on their specific training needs. Training lengths can be shortened or extended to suit the convenience of the organizations and/or universities, and additional components or themes can be incorporated into a course to cater to their requirements.
Customized courses can be held on-campus at UPEACE in Costa Rica, or on-site at the organization or university concerned, or at neutral places (retreats or in-the-field). Summer (July to August) or winter (December to January) programmes are quite popular. On-site courses are typically one, two or three weeks long.
Customized courses can also be developed in online or hybrid modalities. UPEACE-HRC offers several customized online trainings to organizations based on their specific needs, including the United Nations, other inter-governmental organizations, governments, universities, non-governmental organizations and businesses.
