About The Professional Directors Association

Professional Directors Association

The Professional Directors Association through its sister organisations have been leading providers of top quality Director training courses in the UK for over 20 years. We are now focussing on the direct delivery of Board Director training courses, leading to professional Director Qualifications. Our goal is to train and qualify at least one Director on every UK Board and as many directors as possible internationally. This will improve the quality and effectiveness of all Boards and their companies.

We are a Not for Profit Social Enterprise. We are strongly focussed on combatting climate change. We plant 100 trees for every delegate day, on behalf of our Director delegates. These trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere to reduce their personal carbon footprints. Please look at our 100Trees Planting and Carbon Dioxide Reduction Initiative

Director Qualifications

The main Director Qualifications awarded by the Professional Directors Association are the:

  • Company Board Director Certificate Qualification
  • Company Board Director Diploma Qualification

The Director Qualifications and the associated courses can be delivered Live Online or In Person at prestigious venues throughout the UK. We offer all of our Director Qualifications and Director Courses on a scheduled multi-company basis or as single company Internal Director training programmes.

Company Objectives and Climate Change

We are strongly focussed on combatting climate change. We plant 100 trees for every delegate day, on behalf of our Director delegates. These trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere to reduce their personal carbon footprints.

We will reduce our carbon footprint and that of our Director Delegates. Together, we will help the planet to breathe, by becoming personally Net Zero for COEmissions. We will achieve this by:

  • Planting 100 trees for every PDA delegate course day (we will measure and judge our success against this factor)
  • Funding the Planting of trees to offset our own COemissions. We have already planted over 5,000 trees
  • Helping and encouraging our clients on further easy practical steps to reduce their COemissions

These are more than just worthy objectives. They are statements of intent, which are built into our corporate DNA. We can and must deliver on our Net Zero Carbon objectives. The Planet, the Global Economy and our Children are depending on us.

Please work with us today to help make tomorrow better.
