PDRi is, thus striving to bring new and advanced concepts to the body of knowledge. Formal structural education system both online and in campus is in vogue in every part of the world. A little attention is paid to professional executive qualification mainly for on job professionals. This Concept is based on the assumption that due to family and job pressures, every person can not afford to pursue traditional education. For it, many experiments in the West like USA, UK, France have taken place and new terminologies like RPL, recognition of 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 on wrong ways. The honorary chairman of this organization, Dr. Zaher Shah, who is 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 methodologies of learning and development through research and problem solution mechanisms. The main approach for this purpose, relied on assessment & evaluation of existing competencies on bases of Research. Here a research implies to test, verify and or to enhance the intensity and frequency of the prospect 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 frame works 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/PDRC presents a unique, adventurous, innovative idea of how to enhance professionalism, keeping in view the challenges of the 21th century, and post modernism era. To give a practical shape to the ideas of PDRi members, various memorandums and agreements have been done with various 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 around the world,for attaining high profile jobs and it is accredited by NAAC of Canada. Similarly the European International University,inc.Paris is also a very standard selection. It has for the first time in history of man kind touched on a unique frame work of 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 EIU’s flexible programmes, enabling them to study while working. Unlike academic learning, there is direct application for learning that takes place 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, majority of the learned and highly marketable Vocational Skills are practically useful all over the world, creating employment opportunities globally. Apart from the many personal and professional benefits that VEPT provide 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., catalyst for national growth.
