The necessity for lifelong learning is well-established. Having become certified, fresh learning experiences help professionals to maintain their knowledge and keep up-to-date with the latest developments. Many professional qualifications are no longer valid for life, and holders must demonstrate Continuous Professional Development (CPD) in order to retain their credentials. PMD Pro+ offers a range of activities for just this purpose.
The PMD Pro and Program DPro certifications help you to gain and affirm knowledge of project and program management in the development sector. Becoming certified is a great achievement. But don´t stop there!

Qual é sua opinião sobre o treinamento / exame PMD Pro?
“Não tenho dúvidas de que o PMD Pro é o melhor curso de gerenciamento de projetos para profissionais do terceiro setor. A grande vantagem do PMD Pro é que existem excelentes ferramentas aplicáveis a todos os ciclos de vida do projeto. Além de fornecer conteúdo rico para o setor de desenvolvimento, o PMD Pro permite que você seja certificado internacionalmente em gestão de projetos.

What are your thoughts on the training / exam?
“I have no doubt that PMD Pro is the best project management course for professionals in the third sector. The great advantage of PMD Pro is that there are excellent tools applicable to all project life cycles. In addition to providing rich content for the development sector, PMD Pro enables you to be internationally certified in project management. I recently achieved the Level 2 certification.”
Born and raised in a developing country and having worked with many non-for-profit organizations, I was always eager to learn more about the uniqueness of the program and project management models used within organizations like NGO’s. Earlier last year, a friend of mine brought my attention to PM4NGOs. I went through their website in details and came across the certifications they offer and found them to be very interesting as they are specific to Program and Project Management for Development Projects.

“I am Maged Kassoum. A humanitarian young man worker based in Syria. I think no effort is required to define or explain SYRIA.
I am writing to tell you about my experience in achieving PMD Pro Level1, especially how I proudly gained PMD Pro certificate.
Living in conflict zone, I apprehend the deep need for acquiring more professional skills and competences in humanitarian domain, especially in project development sector. I joined many INGOs: Syria Recovery Trust Fund/SRTF as field coordination officer; Islamic Relief Worldwide as FLS project officer and ACTED as TVET and SME Livelihoods assistant.
During that time, my need to have more knowledge about managing projects increased fast; it even turned to a must. I was eager to attend and to study the most professional course which enable me to manage relief and aid projects professionally.
Again, short time available to educate myself due to my engagement in relief work, unsafe environment due to different war works- fighting between opposed sides, battles, air attacks and different bombardment- and other catastrophic circumstances prevented me from attending development and training center.
At last, I decided to search the internet for the ideal platform which can grant me this professional training. I registered in disasterready.org because I see it verified and reliable one. I read about PMD Pro in its content.
