Ways to Earn PDUs

Your professional and personal growth starts here

Certification renewal at PMI is your opportunity to learn the latest skills that will help you get ahead in your professional life, network with other professionals, as well as share your knowledge and volunteer.

There are two types of professional development units (PDUs) that you can claim towards renewal — Education and Giving Back to the Profession. Under each of these categories are numerous options and, once you’ve satisfied certain educational requirements, the rest is up to you.

Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) certification holders do not have to earn PDUs to maintain their certification. To maintain your CAPM, you must retake the exam every five years.

Why are there so many options?

We understand that everyone has different goals and interests. Different industries have different requirements as well. Perhaps you want to make a change in career, or learn a new approach — the CCR program is your opportunity to explore new options and new avenues.

Discover some ways that you can earn Education and Giving Back PDUs.
