PDUs Categorizations

On 1st December 2015, the PDU requirements for PMI® Certification holders was updated to arrange the employer-identified skills represented as the PMI Talent Triangle® with 3 fundamental aspects:
•  Technical Project Management
•  Leadership
•  Strategic and Business Management

These three project management’s key aspects are well accepted and widely used these days. This article will discuss the PMP® / PMI-ACP® Educational PDU requirements and ways to categorize the PDUs activities according to the PMI Talent Triangle®. 

1. PMP® / PMI-ACP® Educational PDUs requirements

Back in the day, PMI® required credential holders to get educational PDUs in order to fulfill the continuing education requirements of the certifications without specifying which skills areas the educational PDUs should be focused on. As to help certification holders to acquire skills that the employers and market often required as a whole value, PMI® then defined 3 key aspects, which are the focus of changes in the updated PDU requirements. However, there are still no changes in the total amount of PDUs required or the certification renewal.
