Earn PDUs

How to Earn PDUs

For all PMI certifications except the CAPM®, you’ll need to follow the Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program and earn professional development units (PDUs.) The goal is to ensure that your certified competencies stay relevant and up-to-date.

Your PDU activities must relate to topics that are substantially consistent with the Exam Content Outline for your certification. Check your CCR Handbook to understand the PDU amounts needed and the qualifying activities for your certification.

There are tons of opportunities to earn PDUs. Choose the ways that work for you and make the most of your enrichment!
