Like Dr. Edward Roy, the president of EIU- Paris university, the Chief Advisor of PDRi, Dr. Zaher Shah, Ph.D , a renowned researcher and teacher, is focusing on introducing new modes, methodologies, and styles of modern qualification system, that suit all adults’ needs and requirements. So the following major Modes of study are being adopted.
Direct Awards System:( DAS):
According to this method which is primarily in practice at advanced countries, the past experiences and work potentials of the candidates are transformed and accredited into Professional Certification. However to avail this opportunity the prospect is needed to write an essay type ACTION Research Assignment of 50 Pages, with less than 20% of plagiarism. This is the most suitable mode of study for overseas Pakistanis who are practically trained but dont have time for proper/ regular study. For those overseas who are having at least 04 years experience in a specific area, but at lower rank jobs like welding technicians, electricians, survey assistants, construction labour, health care attendants, etc can also be strongly encouraged for this mode with more flexibility. However such certifications will not be academic in nature.
