PM4NGOs invites new trainers and training organizations to develop their own training courses and help disseminating the Project DPro (PMD Pro 2nd Edition) and Program DPro.
You will find below all requirements and steps to become a trainer, enroll at the PM4NGOs Training Partners Program, and being able to invigilate (validate) certification exams.
PM4NGOs maintains a global network of training providers for professionals seeking the Project DPro (PMD Pro) and the Program DPro certifications. Your organization can join this network, increase visibility, and access to training opportunities presented to PM4NGOs.
Among many other benefits, Training Partners have early access to PM4NGOs new guides and publications, training materials, and tools. Partners are also eligible to work with PM4NGOs on the guides update and developing new publications.
Please use the buttons below to check the requirements, benefits, and access the application form.
Important note: new partners approvals are at the PM4NGOs discretion. Attending the partnership program criteria does not make any individual or organization automatically entitled to become a partner. Likewise, PM4NGOs might cancel partnership agreements in case of misbehaviour or non-observance of the partnership MoU or PM4NGOs policies and values.
Here are a few recommendations to becoming a DPro trainer. If you answer yes to all questions, you are ready to develop your training materials and start sharing the Project DPro and Program DPro through your own training courses. Check our FAQ page if you still have any questions after reading these recommendations.
1. Are you Project DPro (PMD Pro 2nd Edition) or Program DPro Certified?
Although we recognize that holding other certifications is beneficial for a Project DPro and a Program DPro trainer, each best practice and methodology requires that you deeply know it to become its trainer. The project management techniques, tools, language, and processes are similar but not the same.
We also strongly recommend that you get a minimum 80% score on the Project DPro or Program DPro exam to become a trainer. That is a requirement to become a PM4NGOs Training Partner.
2. Do you have practical experience in applying Project DPro or Program DPro best practices and tools?
Before becoming a trainer, we recommend that you have at least one year of practical experience. A good trainer must understand how Project DPro or Program DPro tools and techniques work and respond to the project / program management day-to-day activities and challenges.
3. Do you have the experience in facilitating training courses?
You will not find training techniques in the Project DPro or Program DPro Guide. If you do not have training skills, we strongly recommend that you take a Training of Trainers course. You should make sure you have the necessary facilitation competencies before undertaking to train others.
Some of Training Partners also offer Training of Trainers courses.
4. Do you have the experience with the non-profit / governmental sector?
Each sector has its specific context and challenges. In order to become a good Project DPro trainer, you and your trainers must have experience with the non-profit / governmental sector.
Only authorized organizations and individuals can manage DPro exams. The following organizations are entitled to invigilate exams:
- PM4NGOs Training Partners
- Non-profit organizations (INGOs and NGOs) that have their internal non-commercial training courses
- PM4NGOs Hubs
If your non-profit organization offers DPro training courses for internal staff, free of cost for participants, we would like to invite you to become a PM4NGOs NGO Partner. Your organization will be able to purchase groups of exams, manage your candidates, and access their exam results and reports.
Please contact our team and we will connect you with our internal committee that analyses non-profit partnerships.
