The article provides complete and detailed information on accumulating PDUs to maintain and renew certificates from PMI® through CCR requirements (for PMP®, PgMP®, PfMP®, PMI-PBA®, PMI-ACP®, PMI-RMP®, PMI-SP®, and CAPM®). True to what PMI® commits, the value of the certificate does not stop at the knowledge learned during exam preparation, but also goes through the activities that the certificate holder must participate in to improve capacity & dedication for the community.
Once you own a certificate from PMI®, you need to accumulate PDUs & pay the renewal fee to maintain the certificate.
PDU (Professional Development Units) is a system that converts learning and career development activities into specific hours. It can be said that PDU is a unit of measurement used by PMI® to quantify learning and professional performance. One PDU is worth one hour of active participation.
There are two types of PDUs as follows:
- Education PDU: A developer of learning opportunities to enhance the owner's capacity, improve leadership, strategy & business management skills.
- Giving Back PDU: The developer of sharing activities & using personal knowledge and skills to contribute and develop the owner's professional field.
Each PMI® certificate will have different PDU requirements. Details are in the table below:
Employers, according to research, require practitioners with more than simply technical domain expertise. Leadership and business intelligence abilities are required to support long-term strategic goals that contribute to their success. The optimal skill set is a blend of technical, leadership, strategic, and business management abilities, which we refer to as the PMI Talent Triangle™.
The CCR program's education component is linked with the PMI Talent Triangle™ to ensure you are prepared to remain relevant in a constantly changing corporate environment. As a certification holder, you must acquire a certain amount of PDUs in each of the PMI Talent Triangle™ skill areas: technical, leadership, and strategic and business management. PDUs gained in education can surpass this amount, and there is no limit to the number of PDUs that can be obtained.
The education requirements are further subdivided based on the PMI Talent Triangle™ skill categories, which are listed below:
Giving Back to the Profession
PMI® acknowledges that actively sharing your knowledge and skills is a good way to contribute to the profession. Furthermore, many people feel that giving back is a rewarding learning experience that benefits their professional growth in a variety of ways. As a result, giving back actions qualify for PDUs and are included in the CCR program.
It is crucial to understand that giving back is an optional way to earn PDUs. The above-mentioned giving back criteria are the maximum number of PDUs permitted for any certification in this category. If PDUs are gained by handing them back, the sum cannot exceed the above-mentioned restrictions.
