"As an experienced development professional, I was looking for a project management training and certification that would be highly relevant, give me a thorough grounding on project management best practices and help me to take my career to the next level. Following some research on the matter I decided to go for the Project Management for Development Professionals (PMD Pro). I completed my PMD Pro training and certification with Game Changer Training and Consulting Ltd and was highly pleased with their service. They were very flexible to adapt the timetable of the training to suit our requirements and provided all the support and encouragement I needed to get the necessary knowledge and skills and pass the PMD Pro certification exam. It was great to learn from a facilitator who has significant level of international exposure and experience of working in development projects. I would highly recommend Game Changer Training and Consulting Ltd for your training needs in project management or other areas."

"When I decided to acquire my PMD Pro Certification I was fortunate enough to have access to industry experts and ask for their advice. Almost everyone recommended Shahriar’s name, so I took his course knowing that I'm making the right choice. Needless to say, I wasn’t disappointed. Shahriar has a wealth of experience within the world of international development, sustainable development goals, and project management. The information and hands-on knowledge I have accumulated with the help of his lessons are what made it possible for me to pursue a career in the development sector. The course itself is self-paced which enabled me to learn whenever I had time. The interactive lessons and Shahriar’s vast experience within his field allowed me to progress much faster than I had anticipated. One of the many things that made the learning curve easy was Shahriar’s way of delivering the lessons. He makes this elaborate subject understandable and enjoyable to everyone, regardless of their level of experience. Signing up for the course was one of the best investments I have ever made. Thank you!"

"The course was fantastic! Shahriar really delivered with this clear, concise and comprehensive course. As someone who has never delved into project management, especially in the development sector, the videos were very easy to understand. The concepts were explained clearly, the examples that Shahriar used were relatable and easy to understand. It exceeded my expectations by far. I watched each video first and then read the corresponding chapter in the guide. This made it easier for me to thoroughly understand and retain the information. The quizzes after each section were very helpful too, they helped me prepare for the exam. Truly great content! Looking forward to starting my journey. Thanks again Shahriar, all the best!""
