Moratuwa Uni and Dhammika & Priscilla Perera Foundation to build skilled workforce


The University of Moratuwa (UoM) and Dhammika & Priscilla Perera Foundation (DP Foundation) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 2 June 2022 to open online course development and delivery at the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) level of the Project Management Institute, USA.

The objective of this initiative is to provide opportunities to learn free of charge the required knowledge at the level of CAPM to all project participants in Sri Lanka. It comprises twelve (12) foundational modules that cover the knowledge and skills at the CAPM level.

DP Foundation, through its DP Education arm will assist the University of Moratuwa in this initiative by providing the required funding and supportive human resources to create content for the 12 online foundational modules.

The first initiative between UoM and the DP Education was the launch of the ‘Trainee-Full Stack Developer’ online programme offered free of charge to students who had completed their Advanced level examinations. This initiative was launched on 22 February 2022. Within the first 100 days of the launch more than 83,000 students had enrolled for this course.

DP Foundation, which is a philanthropic initiative of Dhammika and Priscilla Perera, has developed Sri Lanka’s largest free online learning platform – DP Education to produce a knowledge-based society and improve the skills of every Sri Lankan.
