Project Management in Development Professional (PMD Pro) Certification Training
The Project DPro Foundation training, which until recently was called PMD-Pro-1, provides new or longtime project managers the skills needed to deliver effective, transparent results to donors and communities.
Project DPro was developed in partnership with Project Management for NGOs (PM4NGOs), an organization dedicated to optimizing international projects and improving professional project management skills in the development sector. Project DPro is aligned with internationally recognized project management best practices and includes components specific to the NGO sector.
The Project DPro Guidebook (PMD Pro 2nd Edition) is supplied free – however the certification exam for the Project DPro Foundation Examination is provided directly by the international examination company APMG International.
Note: The Project DPro Practitioner Examination (which until recently was known as PMD-Pro-2) is launching in early 2021.
