​The PDC Material we offer was originally developed by Bill Mollison, co-founder of permaculture, to teach the principles and ethics for sustainable design.  All international PDC courses must follow the same format to ensure the integrity of the certification.
This format allows the participants to dive into the principles of design in Permaculture, which will be applied and presented by the students in the Final Design Project. To qualify for the diploma, participants must attend a minimum of 80% of the course and present the Final Design Project.
Participants in the Permaculture Design Course who meet the above criteria receive a diploma at the end of the course. The diploma certificates that the participants acquired some knowledge in the area and allows them to start using the word “permaculture” in their personal or professional life.
At the end of the PDC, students who want to use permaculture in their personal lives should be able to start applying the knowledge they have acquired in the training.  Those hoping to use permaculture in the professional environment should add to this certification a minimum of two years of practice and a few hours of coaching from experienced teachers.  However, students who appear with previous experience may be able to use permaculture in the professional environment much earlier. There is no formalized criterion to determine when an individual is ready to move into professional practice. The responsibility for this decision rests with each participant.
This course is based on the 14 chapters of the book Permaculture: A Designers Manual by Bill Mollison.
Topics to be covered in this course:

  • Permaculture principles and ethics;
