The Project DPro (PMD Pro) Foundation Certification is intended for those new to project management, those with experience working in a project-based environment who are looking for a refresher, and for experienced project managers who are new to working in the international development sector.
The goal of the Project DPro Foundation Certification is to:
- confer a professional certification status for project managers in the sector
- provide certification and learning resources that are comprehensive, accessible and appropriate to professionals working in the sector
- integrate content that is contextualized to the international development sector with other internationally-recognized certifications.
The examination is available on-line via the APMG International and requires candidates to demonstrate that they know and understanding content of the Project Management for Development Professionals Guide (Project DPro Guide). The exams are multiple choice with 75 questions. The pass mark is 65% – or 49 correct questions. There is no ‘negative’ marking so an incorrect answer does not lose you marks.
