Certified professional development courses

The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement's Certified Professional Development courses provide a series of online, entry and mid-level, accredited, tutor-led courses offered in partnership with selected learning and training institutions worldwide.

As with all other LET hub programmes, these courses are built on the founding principles, practice and thinking of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement. They provide and allow participants to gain Red Cross Red Crescent-specific experience, knowledge and skills. Most of the courses have discounted fees for Red Cross Red Crescent National Society staff and volunteers working in related areas.

Further details on each course are available by following the relevant link. We expect this series of courses to expand rapidly. We always welcome suggestions for further partnership collaborations with learning and training institutions.
