Description

PMD Pro 1 is a five-day introduction to project management in a humanitarian and development context. This certified course covers the basic concepts, terminology, and tools of project management used by NGOs, and will allow participants to develop an understanding of the principles and methods of project management within the context of international development projects.

The course is assessed by a one hour, closed-book multiple choice exam.

Project Management in Development (PMD Pro) is a three-level certification sequence developed by APMG International in partnership with Project Management for NGOs (PM4NGOs). RedR is authorised to deliver the PMD Pro programme through registration with Learning in NGOs (LINGOs), a consortium of over 55 international humanitarian relief, development, conservation and health organisations.
