Level Up Your Agency’s Digital Project Management Prowess

Shape your team into business-savvy digital project leaders through practical training created by seasoned agency experts.


The growth conundrum

Unpredictable projects are a huge factor limiting an agency’s ability to grow. But those in-demand digital projects that involve people, pixels, and code can sometimes feel like the least predictable of all.


Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Your digital projects get delivered late and over budget, disrupting ops and eroding client trust
  • You’re growing rapidly, but you’re not yet in a position to bring on a senior digital PM
  • Your clients expect you to tackle complex tech-driven projects, but your PMs are out of their depth
  • You want your PMs to be more business-savvy, but you don’t have the time to coach them

If so, don’t sweat it. We’ve got you covered.

Let’s take the drama out of your digital projects ✨.

We created this program with one goal in mind: to create the next generation of confident, business-savvy project leaders in the digital agency world.

The teams we’ve trained have gone on to successfully deliver some of the most daunting and high-profile projects within their organization.

Here’s how it could work for you:


Streamline your onboarding

Stop baptizing new hires by fire. Get fresh PMs up and running in a safe-to-fail environment that doesn’t require heavy oversight from your team leaders.


Fill skills gaps in your team

Keep your top performers relevant, adaptable, and engaged by rounding out their digital mindset and their business acumen.


Promote from within

Your next all-star project manager may already work for you. Nurture promising in-house talent into a rewarding new role.


Bolster client trust

Show your clients your delivery team has what it takes. Get all your project managers certified by the world’s biggest, baddest collective of digital project managers.

What some of our recent agency grads are saying

I took the course at the beginning of my first ever PM job. It was a great way to have a deep-dive and put some of what I learned into practice from day one!

Aldona Kmiec
Digital Producer

The course gave me a solid understanding of what PMs do, the roadblocks they face, and how to overcome them. I'm thankful for all of the fires I've avoided in my own job!

Brandon Llewellyn
Account & Project Manager

I took the course for some formal training even though I had many years of experience. I highly recommend the DPM School regardless of where you are in your PM career.

How is the course structured?

The course is divided into 7 parts that follow the end-to-end life cycle of a digital project:

  1. Digital Project Management Essentials
  2. Driving Strategic Alignment
  3. Creating Realistic Project Plans
  4. Leading Effective Collaboration
  5. Managing Risk & Solving Problems
  6. Bringing Your Projects Across The Finish Line
  7. Developing Your Project Leadership Style

You’ll get access to all the course content from day one with a guide for progressing theme-by-theme at your own pace.

Is there a live component to the course?

We are committed to supporting learners all over the world. To do that, we keep all the interactive components and discussions in Slack so that learners can engage when it works for their schedule.

We do sometimes have live sessions, but these are optional and are run in pairs to accommodate multiple time zones.

How do I get the course certificate?

DPM School certification gives you the chance to share your achievement in completing the Mastering Digital Project Management course with your network. Our certification is provided by Accredible, allowing you to add your certification to your LinkedIn profile.

The certification is available for those who successfully complete all learning arcs, achieve a score of 80% or greater on the assignments, and score above 60% on the final submission-based assignment.

We’ll issue a certificate upon successful completion of all the course requirements. You’re able to resubmit assignments if required.

Can I claim PDU’s?

As of October 2023, we are now a PMI Authorized Training Provider! We are currently rolling out the PDU reporting process, but the course will allow you to report between 12 and 35 PDUs under Ways of Working, Power Skills, and Business Acumen.

Does this count as formal education for my CAPM or PMP application?

This course can be applied towards your professional education hours on your CAPM or PMP application. However, please note that our course is NOT specifically designed to prepare you for writing either exam.

What if I change my mind?

We understand there are reasons why you might need to withdraw from the course. Remember, you get access to the course for 1 year after the course starts. However, if you find that you still have not completed the course within a year, you can reach out to us for a renewal.

We’re confident you’re going to love the course. But if you don’t, just tell us and we’ll issue a full refund—we offer a 100% money-back guarantee.
