PMI PDU Changes

From the 1st March 2011, the PDU system will be updated. The changes will impact all individuals who currently hold an active PMP® credential.

Why not add to your PDU units now by taking the Project Portfolio Management Masterclass taking place in Dublin on May 17.

The goal of the Masterclass is to provide participants with knowledge of the components, importance and challenges of implementing enterprise-level project portfolio management (PPM) based upon the organization's strategic business goals and it is delivered by Professor Sebastian Green and Ed Naughton, Director General of the institute.

The key changes to the program include:

  • Simplification to the Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) category structure, reducing the number of categories from 18 to 6
  • Ensuring that all categories use the rule that one hour of learning activity is equivalent to one PDU
  • Expanding the categories to include Web 2.0 learning opportunities
  • Adding limits on certain categories to require that all credential holders pursue project management continuing education as part of maintaining their credential

All current PDUs will remain valid, the major change is restricting the total number of PDUs earned or reported after the change in the categories associated with ‘Giving Back to the Profession’.

The maximum PDUs (in combination) for ‘Creating New Project Management Knowledge’ (ie, presenting papers), ‘Volunteer Service’ and ‘Working as a Professional in Project Management are capped at 45 for PMP holders.

After 1 March 2011, you will need to report PDUs using the new categories and the new limitations will apply.
