Project DPro

Project D Pro Level 1

Do we need a Standard and Certification for NGO / Social development Projects?

Organisations in the international development sector see improvements in project management practice as a top priority. It is crucial to embed a common approach to project management so that the fundamental and complex challenges faced by frontline leaders and managers of development projects can be consistently and effectively addressed.

The programme provides a thorough grounding in project management concepts, processes and practice. It considers how projects can be consistently organised and managed, effectively and efficiently delivered, completed on time and to agreed budget, scope and quality.

Project D Pro Foundation - Program overview

Project DPro provides project managers in social sector, NGOs and Government enterprises the skills needed to deliver effective, transparent results to Government, donors and communities. The courses and certifications are valuable to all development professionals, from the field staff to project and program managers.

The goal of the Project DPro Foundation 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
