Since its launch in 2009, over 30,000 development and relief professionals have completed the Project DPro Foundation certification. They work in over 100 countries and change the lives of the millions communities they serve.
Now, there is an option for anyone who has a Project DPro certification and is interested in continuing their learning journey. This year, PM4NGOs launched a follow-up certification, the Project DPro Practitioner. This level-2 qualification helps learners apply and tailor project management skills and tools to a variety of project environments and scenarios.
Pyramid Learning will conduct the first on-line facilitated Project DPro Course in April, 2021. The 4-week course is designed to be completed in three parts:
Part 1: Learners complete a number of short courses related to 6 Project Management competency areas. Participants are then asked to demonstrate how their learning will help them develop as project managers.
Part 2: Learners complete a series of informal learning activities, identifying and reading a selection articles on advanced project management topics.
Part 3: Learners have the opportunity to “give back” to the NGO project management community by providing examples or case studies from you’re their own practice.
The course is designed to prepare learners to meet the requirements of the Project DPro Practitioner certification managed by PM4NGOs. The certification requirements do not require taking an exam, instead learners have the option of submitting a portfolio of work related to the applying and tailoring project management tools and skills.
