PDRi/PDRC is primarily committed to bringing new trends in Professional Qualification based on Research Initiatives, which means to bring development to the professionals mainly via Professional Research, training, Online Action Research. PDRi is, thus, striving to carry new and advanced concepts to the body of knowledge. Formal structural education system both online and on-campus is in vogue in every part of the world. A little attention is paid to professional executive qualifications, mainly for on-job professionals. This Concept is based on the assumption that every person can not afford to pursue traditional education due to family and job pressures. Many experiments in the West like U.S.A., UK, France have taken place, and new terminologies like R.P.L. recognize prior learning, E.B.D. Experience-based education, FTES fast track education system, and so many others have evolved. All these methodologies have been designed so delicately that some persons try to gain camouflage under them and set into selling education in the wrong ways. The honorary chairman of this organization, Dr. Zaher Shah, a researcher and expert in career development and counseling, with expertise in professional continuing qualification, was having since long a desire to put forward a professional, friendly methodology learning and development through Research and problem-solving mechanisms. The main approach for this purpose relied on the assessment & evaluation of existing competencies on the basis of Research. Here, Research implies testing, verify, and enhance the intensity and frequency of the prospective candidate. The Research intended for the purpose may vary from simple Assignment to Research Article or Project. Unlike conventional schooling, this set of schooling does not fall in the national or internationally schemed frameworks and regulatory entities, and hence it provides an open option to the trainer and the trainee the best available type and the mode of research work. However, PDRi presents a plate form for such activities keeping in view the needs, environment, and schedule of the professionals, especially the overseas.
So in this way, PDRi presents a unique, adventurous, innovative idea of enhancing professionalism, keeping in view the challenges of the 21st century and post-modernism era. To give a practical shape to the ideas of PDRi members, various memorandums and agreements have been made with multiple entities/bodies/institutions and Research related centers around the world. However, we have decided to work in collaboration with the two institutions, namely 1. TRACCERT Canada, 2. EIU-European International University France. Traccert Canada is selected because Canadian professional qualification is the most trusted worldwide for attaining high profile jobs and AAAC of Canada accredits it.
Similarly, the European International University, inc. Paris is also a very standard selection. For the first time in the history of humanity, it has touched on a unique framework of the qualification system. For complete details of these institutes, browse their sites on www.eiu.ac France and www.traccert.org Canada.
For Overseas Pakistanis, we strive to bring flexible, customized ways of certification.
Most importantly, working professionals who seek to upgrade their knowledge and skills in specialized vocations could benefit from E.I.U.’s flexible programs, enabling them to study while working. Unlike academic learning, there is a direct application for learning in the vocational & professional streams, hence increasing chances of employment and job promotions compared to others without such learning experiences. It is a well-known fact that people often pursue Vocational Education & Professional Training (VEPT) to achieve their dream jobs.
In addition, most of the learned and highly marketable Vocational Skills are practically useful worldwide, creating employment opportunities globally. Apart from the many personal and professional benefits that VEPT provides to an individual, it is a well-accepted fact that it also serves as a great asset to the economy of any country, i.e., the catalyst for national growth.
PDRi team is determined to give a 20% share of the net income in the path of God, which will be spent on the education of the week students, especially in K.P. This is God’s share and will be provided and calculated at the end of every 6th month of the year.
PDRI is the first-ever forum in Pakistan that came into being with the sole aim to focus on the Development Of Professionals- where professionals for us mean a person who is a cobbler or World Class Engineer in a local or multinational firm. The idea of PDRi is an attack on the existing traditional vocational and professional qualifications and to discover and implement overseas-friendly continuing qualifications. The main target of this initiative is to give precedence to Overseas Pakistanis, especially in the Middle East. They are comparatively deprived of timely promotion and finding new jobs and promotions. Secondly, it aims to give a chance of professional qualification to them because living abroad and feeding their families in Pakistan can not find free time for regular in-campus conventional education. To further facilitate them, PDRI is proud to tell that the FEE structure for all such programs is the most economical and can be paid in easy installments. PDRi is a fatal initiative for fake diplomas sellers by not properly explaining the status, nature, and positions of such capacity-building qualifications. Our intermediate pass population is usually prey to such incidence, who try to get academic stuff on short cuts, which is impossible. Only a few authentic bodies in the world provide competency-based and skill-based certifications.
PDRI MUST BE YOUR FIRST CHOICE BECAUSE:
It is managed and operated by research professionals & experts with Lowest Fee in the market. Keeping in view the time and duty factors of overseas working folk, PDRi has adopted so many flexible ways suiting to the preoccupation of them
WHAT DO WE DO?
We simply help guide the professionals who work inside or outside of the country in facilitating them with professional certifications and guidance from internationally reputed institutions through modern tools of study and examinations mainly suited to the scheduled work routine, unlike as are in vogue in the traditional, class and age-specific general education system. The majority of our Adult population, after matric, usually engages in a factory or firm and hence has no time for class-based and time-based study. He is destined to remain in the same position, or even chances of his demotion are waiting for him, and no vertical promotion can he even think of. Some of our youth are stuck in Europe, Middle East, and East Asian Countries. PDRi strives to bring all those legal and practical means and measures to provide the desired level of professional continuing qualification to the prospects. Being researchers, the PDRi board has decided to have lengthy Research on it, and currently, the Canadian-based board traccert.org and the European International University www.eiu.ac can somehow meet the needs of it. However, it is a continuous journey. So what we do is we have a conviction to see our Pakistani Professionals happy and prosperous and can face new challenges. Besides, PDRi has also set up physical training set-ups in Lahore, Islamabad, and Lahore for local Pakistanis who want practical training. Encouraging research culture in the country, we have appointed 1000 Trainers worldwide to provide and supervise the Research and training.
