The KIPCOR Conflict Resolution Certificate offers in-depth education and training in practical conflict management and problem-solving skills applicable to personal, professional and small or large group settings. Certificate courses may be taken for either academic credit or as non-credit professional training.

KIPCOR offers custom training options for professionals that focus more broadly on managing conflict and collaborative problem-solving. We have designed and delivered custom training for a wide variety of clients, tailoring programs to meet the unique needs of specific organizations, agencies, departments or congregations.

KIPCOR staff also teach conflict resolution courses that are integral to the Bethel College Peace, Justice and Conflict Studies (PJCS) minor. Many KIPCOR courses fulfill Bethel’s PJCS General Education requirement.
