The Participatory Disaster Risk Management (PDRM) program is designed for a mixture of humanitarian or development practitioners, as well as university students, and other interested individuals. Participants can choose to take the whole program, or alternatively, pick and choose the various modules. Completion of all five modules plus the three assignment questions, can lead to accreditation with a number of mainly Masters courses offered by two Australian universities.
