Students participating in live UN Mappers courses can obtain a Certificate of Completion, which recognises the skills acquired. Each student receives personal feedback on the OSM edits, which verifies the quality of the mapping. Courses are announced on UN Mappers social media channels and the courses (Basics and Advanced) can be accessed on the UN Maps Learning Hub at any time (although certification is currently only available for live courses).
