Who we are and what we do

PDA Professional Development Associates Pte Ltd was incorporated in Singapore in 1989 and has been providing premium quality leading-edge training in IT and management to business and government ever since that time.

PDA is also a member of the ALC Group. Courses are offered throughout the Asia-Pacific region, in Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia and New Zealand.

Our focus is on best-practice certification in five key streams:

  • IT Service Management (ITIL®)
  • Governance and Standards (COBIT® 5, ISO 27001, ISO 20000)
  • Information Security (SABSA®, CISM®, CISSP®)
  • Project, Programme and Portfolio Management (PRINCE2®, MSP®, P3O®, MoP®, Managing Benefits)
  • Social Business 

More than 30,000 people across the region have been trained by PDA / ALC Group.


Long background in certification training

PDA has been presenting leading-edge IT training since 1989. We have a long background in best-practice certification training. PDA introduced ITIL to Singapore with the first-ever ITIL Foundation Certificate course being held in Singapore in July 1998.

PDA has been offering PRINCE2 certificate training since 2004, COBIT certification since 2006 and SABSA certification since 2007.

Solutions focus

Training today has become increasingly certification-centric.  Everyone wants to pass the exam and get that piece of paper, and we are good at getting you there.

But there’s much more to it than that.  We go further.  In ITIL we offer the whole gamut of training from Foundation to Expert.  And we offer the full range of project, programme and portfolio frameworks and methodologies to ensure that you can add real value to your organisation as well as your career.

Our aim is to provide a comprehensive and robust solution to the information requirements that organisations face.  Our courses are designed to make every participant genuinely more effective back in the workplace.
