The Division for Multilateral Diplomacy of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) is pleased to announce its upcoming Online Certificate on Essential Professional Skills taking place this autumn. The online certificate will consist of a series of e-workshops targeted to working professionals and individuals seeking to improve their professional skills, covering an approximate total of 48 hours of online training. The online certificate aims to reinforce individuals’ transferable professional skills, especially in a time where flexibility and adaptability are key.

Upon successful completion of all four e-workshops, participants will be awarded the Online Certificate on Essential Professional Skills. Participants will also receive a separate certificate for each e-workshop.
The online certificate is aimed at introducing its concept to the wider public and raising awareness around the selected topics. The registration will be open to the public and participants will be admitted upon selection after submitting their CV.
