Certified Mediator & Peace Activist (Online Studies)


Welcome … 
The World Mediation Organization offers a newly developed online course focussing on the highly important topic of Mediation & Peace Activism in English and Spanish language. The content deals with mediation, peace support, humanitarian relief, and security operations. Our curriculum aims to build solid, practical knowledge of United Nations peacekeeping operations and related topics, with course materials written by former Force Commanders, Military Advisers to DPKO, experienced peacekeepers, published scholars, and experts in their fields. Peacekeeping operations and the challenges faced by mediatores and peacekeepers are diverse and complex.

We have been meeting the demand for quality, affordable online peacekeeping training from day one. When you study with WMO, you can learn wherever you are, whenever your schedule permits. At the WMO, we work to take the distance out of distance learning and provide our students worldwide with a learning experience that is rich, interactive, and meaningful. This program considers the UN Guidance for Effective Mediation, as well as international research results regarding the sustainable benefits of teaching Comprehensive and Applied Mediation for professional action in the field.

Relevant Courses

The World Mediation Organization offers 10 self-paced online-learning courses on current topics in mediation and peace support. The course authors are former Force Commanders, Military Advisors to DPKO, experienced peacekeepers, published authors, and scholars in the field who develop our courses to accord with or exceed UN Training Guidance, as appropriate. We strive to continually evaluate and update our courses, developing them in conjunction with important global peacekeeping topics.

Each course contains all needed reading and study materials, learning objectives, and self-scoring end-of-lesson quizzes with answers provided, allowing the student to study at his or her own pace. After completing the quizzes at the end of each lesson, a student completes a unique 50-question multiple choice End-of-Course Examination. With a passing grade of 75%, students are awarded a Certificate of Completion for that course. If students fail the exam, they are provided one opportunity to take an alternate form of the exam.
