Who is the PMI?
Founded in 1969, the PMI is the world’s leading, non-profit association for project management professionals. In 1984, the PMI® introduced PMP (Project Management Professional) certification – the world’s most recognized professional credential for those working in the project management area.
To maintain PMP Certification, PMP's must accrue a minimum of 60 Professional Development Units (PDUs) every three years.
What is a PDU?
A PDU (Professional Development Unit) is the unit of measurement that PMI uses to quantify approved learning and professional service activities. Participants may earn PDUs by completing educational activities that are provided by R.E.P.s. PMPs have to obtain 60 PDUs every three (3) years to maintain their designation. One PDU is equal to one hour of structured learning. Fractions of PDUs may be granted in 0.25 increments after the first contact hour. PMP examination candidates and PMPs may register these PDUs towards the attainment or maintenance of their certification.
How many PDUs do participants need to earn?
If applying to sit the PMP examination for the first time, participants need 35 PDUs. To maintain PMP certification, PMPs need to accrue 60 PDUs over a three-year period.
How are PDUs reported?
PMPs are responsible for reporting their activities as they occur by completing the PMP Professional Development Activities Form and forwarding the required information to the PMI/PDP Records Office. PMPs are also required to maintain a personal PDP (Professional Development Program) folder containing all the documentation needed to support their claim.
How do I submit PDU's?
