Frequently Asked Questions

Can I pick and choose any module to take first?

Yes. You may choose any of the first four modules and complete all four in any the order you choose, however, we recommend taking the course in the order prescribed for students that have not been a board member.

Are there computer requirements to be able to take the Pro.Dir course online?

No, as long you have internet capabilities and access.

Is this entirely correspondence based or is there a residency requirement to the program?

This version of the program is available entirely on-line.  There are other versions of the program, customized to different clients' needs, that have the final module as an in person Residency rather than an on-line Practicum.  And others where the whole program is delivered in person.  But the public version is completely on-line.  The Practicum gives participants an interactive feel with a fictionalized case study to play the role of board and committee members in applying the learnings of the program and making decisions in a governance setting. 

What is the time and cost commitment for the online version of the program?

Answer - The cost is $1,495 per module (four modules for certification) plus $395 for the Practicum.  The program can be completed at your own pace.  We anticipate that most students could comfortably complete the entire course over a period of six months.  But you may take up to three years if needed to complete all five modules.  On successful completion of the exam you will receive your Professional Director™ certification from Professional Director Inc.
