Ways to Earn Giving Back PDUs

Giving back is all about personal growth

Giving Back to the Profession is a unique opportunity for you to expand your knowledge and skills while growing both personally and professionally. Although not required for recertification, earning Giving Back PDUs is a great way to expand your horizons.

Here are some popular ways that you can earn Giving Back PDUs:

Work as a Practitioner

By working in your certified role, you can earn PDUs by applying your knowledge and skills in a practical setting.

Create Content

Do you write articles or blogs? Give webinars? Make videos? Today’s digital world is full of new content and anything you create counts towards your re-certification.


Give a Presentation

If you speak at your organization, at a PMI chapter event or a conference, you can claim PDUs for it.


Share Knowledge

Others can benefit from your experience and knowledge. Keep track of the time you spend mentoring and teaching and claim it towards re-certification.


PMI is just one of many organizations that relies on volunteers. Why not become one and earn credit towards re-certification in the process?
