IOPS Curriculum and conferences
Below you can find a general overview of our courses, including a general description. Please note that some courses are given biennially and that the months stated are indicative only (due to circumstances, a course may be organized in another month)
In our Course Agenda you will find the current scheduled courses and, when available, specific information on dates and programs.
This overview can assist prospective IOPS students to draw up their education plan. The requirements for the IOPS certificate can be found here.
The curriculum part of the requirements consists of both 5 EC mandatory and 5 EC elective courses. For the elective courses, it is allowed to follow relevant courses outside IOPS.
We have a standing collaboration with our German partner SMiP. This collaboration includes mutually opening courses. SMiP courses can be counted towards the full 5 EC elective courses. More information can be found here.
You can registrer for all courses with the IOPS coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
Courses are free of charge for IOPS members. Affiliated members or other externals might have to pay a fee. The fee can differ for each course and can be requested with the IOPS coordinator.
Regular IOPS members have priority when courses are full.
