Purpose

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 experienced trainers 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!”

Note: 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 you will need to bring a laptop with the ability to connect to Wi-Fi.

Participants completed the course will earn 19.5 CPE credits and receive a certificate of attendance. The course level is Basic.  The delivery method of this program is Group Live and the Field of Study is Specialized Knowledge.
