Overview

PMD Pro 1 is a globally recognized project management certification for development professionals. This three-day, high-impact workshop gives you the skills you need to effectively initiate, plan, execute, and close out projects. Delivering your project on scope, on time, and on budget requires specific knowledge that is first learned and then refined through practice. This workshop, taught by an experienced team in a participatory style, has been highly rated by thousands of practitioners who have completed the course and been successfully certified. As one attendee noted, “This course is desperately needed in our industry. I was hoping that the content would really be relevant to us. It was!”

Who Should Attend

In addition to individual participants, we encourage teams of employees to attend this workshop together. You are invited to bring current work projects to which you can apply the new concepts taught in the workshop. Staff who will benefit from attending this workshop include:

  • Individuals who are new to project management. You will gain a solid foundation in internationally accepted project management concepts, terminology, tools, and techniques.
  • Seasoned practitioners who already have some experience. This is an opportunity to hone your skills through small group work, and learn from peers working in other NGOs who face similar challenges in their jobs.
  • Team members who work in other functional areas of an NGO. You will learn the best practices in project management and gain a clearer picture of your role within a project.

What You Will Learn

You will learn how to:

  • Organize your work in a way that will make you more effective
  • Articulate what is in your project scope, what is out of scope, and why
  • Develop an accurate schedule and employ techniques to effectively manage it
  • Identify, analyze, and engage stakeholders
  • Define roles and responsibilities for your project team
  • Assess project risks and develop strategies for responding

Certification 

PMD Pro 1 is the first level of the project management certification program for practitioners working in the development sector. To take the PMD Pro 1 certification exam, offered on the third day of the program, you will need to bring a laptop with the ability to connect to Wi-Fi.
