Professional Directors Program

Participation in this course meets the recommended best practice for the orientation of directors prescribed in the Revised Corporation Code of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

ICD is a Civil Service Commission (CSC) Accredited Learning and Development Institution.

This is a Career Executive Service Board (CESB) Accredited Training Program.

Boards have the primary responsibility of leading any institution or organization. The Institute of Corporate Directors flagship course, the Professional Directors Program (PDP), trains and orients both incumbent and aspiring directors in the role of boards and members of boards in the governance of their respective establishments.


PDP provides directors with tools to create value for the corporation and helps them become catalysts for transformative change both in their organizations and the society they live in.


ICD taps highly-experienced and internationally-trained individuals, from its roster of teaching fellows, to facilitate the sessions. Highly-interactive learning sessions with ICD's Teaching Fellows, who draw from real-life boardroom experiences during discussions, will ensure that the sessions enrich participants.
