RedR UK offers a range of certified and credit-rated courses

Master's-level credit-rated courses (in partnership with Oxford Brookes University)

RedR UK offers a range of certified and credit-rated courses.

In partnership with Oxford Brookes University (OBU), we offer Master's-level credit-rated courses in:

  • 'Field Logistics in Emergencies'
  • 'Needs Assessment in Emergencies'
  • 'Essentials of Humanitarian Practice'
  • 'Managing People and Projects in Emergencies'
  • 'Certificate in Security Management'
  • 'Children in Emergencies'

These Master's-level courses are worth 10 credits each (a complete Master's in the UK is worth 180 credits) and involve pre-course reading, five days of face-to-face training including an in-class assessment, and a post-course written assignment.

The UK’s National Qualification Framework (NQF) rates all courses in terms of demand on the learner so they can be easily compared. Master's level courses such as ours are level 7 of 8 possible levels.

Credits are also recognised internationally and our courses are equivalent to level 7 on the European Qualifications Framework (EQCA). On the European Credit Framework, two UK credits are worth one European credit (ECTS), so our courses are the equivalent of five ECTS.

Please note that there is an additional charge per ticket for those wishing to take the credit-rated option. Visit our course finder to find the dates, relevant fees, and locations of specific courses.

CPD Accreditation

We are delighted to announce that several of our courses are also accredited by the CPD Certification Service:

  • 'Training of Trainers for the Humanitarian Sector'
  • 'Health in Humanitarian Settings'
  • 'Project Management for Development Professionals' (PMD-Pro) Level 1 (see below)

Continuing Professional Development is essential in helping individuals, organisations or entire industries to keep skills and knowledge up to date. The CPD Certification Service provides recognised independent CPD accreditation that's compatible with global CPD requirements. Accredited CPD training means that the learning activity has been tested for integrity and quality, and reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks.

Project Management for Development Professionals (PMD-Pro) Level 1

Project Management for Development Professionals (PMD Pro) was created by several of the world's best-known NGOs, all of whom are committed to improving the use of the resources entrusted to them for development, relief and conservation projects. The certification is seen as an important benchmark for continuous improvement.

PMD Pro 1 is a five-day introduction to project management in a humanitarian and development context. The course covers the basic concepts, terminology and tools of project management used by NGOs.

RedR UK is authorised to deliver the PMD Pro programme through registration with LINGOs, a consortium of over 55 international humanitarian relief, development, conservation and health organisations.

There are now over 15,000 PMD-trained professionals

in 150 countries around the world
