What are Professional development units (PDU)?

Professional Development Units (PDUs) are credits needed for renewal of the PMP certification. Maintaining your PMI certification keeps you relevant  and is a competitve advantage. 

Every certification except the CAPM® requires you to earn a specific amount of PDUs per three-year certification cycle. The requirements differ for each certification, so check the PMI website to find out more. The certification begins the day you pass the exam and/or multi-rater assessment and ends on the same date three years later (except for CAPM). Typically, one PDU is earned for every one hour spent in a planned, structured learning experience or activity. Fractions of PDUs may be reported in 0.25 increments following one full hour.

The PMI updated the program in December 2015 to include more emphasis on employer-demanded skills as outlined in the PMI Talent TriangleTM. This provides the guidance you need to stay relevant and competitive in the profession. More information about the new program is available on the PMI website
