Certified EU Civilian Crisis Management Course - C³MC

Europe's New Training Initiative for Civilian Crisis Management (ENTRi) certifies training courses in the field of civilian crisis management. A C³MC-label is awarded to courses that meet established standards and criteria for training civilian personnel that are to be deployed to crisis management missions. The ENTRi certification system has been designed to further enhance coherent and high-level training activities in the field of civilian crisis management. It offers an objective evaluation standard and allows training institutions to align their courses with international standard, which are recognised by organisations and professionals at the European level.

The application for the C³MC-label is open to course organisers within and outside Europe, provided that they are a legal entity pursuant to the legislation of their country of origin and have previous experience in organising training courses in the field of civilian crisis management. Applications will be reviewed by the ENTRi Certification working group under the chairmanship of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Pisa, Italy). Adherence to certified minimum standards will be reviewed on the basis of the application submitted by course organisers as well as random on-site visits during the delivery of the courses.

The certification is subject to the conclusion of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the applicants and the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna covering the terms of use of the C³MC label. Once certification is awarded, it is valid for three years. Periodical review of the certified training courses may be conducted. Once the certification period has expired, course organisers may re-apply for certification through a simplified application procedure.

The typology of courses for which the ENTRi certification can be requested are those for which ENTRi has already adopted a course concept paper and which have already been successfully implemented. Course concept papers can be found below.

Please note that ENTRi is only allowed to certify public entities.
