Educational Recognition in Switzerland

The most effective and efficient way to raise up great leaders is if you can use a mix of theory and practical application. Our training plan is rooted in different courses registered by YWAMes educational institution. In Switzerland YWAM Davos is not a registered / accredited educational institution. Depending on the country, university or college credits may be transferable. The student is responsible to figure out if the training you do here in YWAM Davos is a recognized educational course by your country or university and if you can transfer some or all credits.
