The PM4SD Program

PM4SD - Project Management for Sustainable Tourism - is the first sucessful methodology and qualification for designing and managing tourism projects. The methodology is based on PRINCE2® (Projects In Controlled Environments), a structured method for effective project management, the de facto standard used extensively by the United Kingdom Government and widely recognized and used in the public and private sector worldwide.

PM4SD applies whenever an organization, whether public or private, needs to plan and manage a sustainable tourism initiative. It provides a guarantee for public authorities that the project will be transformed into concrete actions with clearly defined roles and responsibilities, and that these actions will have a real impact on local communities. It helps governments and companies to plan transparently and not to forget that every action must have correspondent benefits. It is a practice to be adopted for participatory, transparent and effective management

The program consists of two parts, the Foundation program and the Practitioner Program.

The Foundation training is a three day intensive course designed to provide participants with knowledge and understanding to work effectively within a project management team to successfully deliver a sustainable tourism project. The foundation level training is a pre-requisite for the practitioner certification.

The Practitioner Training is a two day intensive course designed to equip participants with the skills to manage and deliver a sustainable project using PM4SD.

A special case study will be presented by Dr. David Randle in the course on the new Villages Nature Paris. a joint venture with Pierre et Vacances and Euro Disney.   The project is a global model for sustainable tourism and we will examine the project management.

Prerequisites for the course include participants having at least one of the following:

  • Current USF PCGS student, staff or faculty
  • A tourism qualification or currently undertaking a tourism related degree
  • Relevant experience in the tourism sector
  • Belong to an organization that is a member of the Blue Community Consortium.
  • Very good/excellent command of English: all training courses are offered in English as well as the exams

Certificates for successful completion of the course are issued by AMPG International within 2 weeks of receipt of application.
