I'm in the process of helping my client make their submissions for PMI Professional Development Units (PDUs). All PMPs need 60 PDUs during a CCR cycle so don't put it off until the last minute. In this case, my client participated in a workshop. If you want to collect PDUs, you're going to need some kind of evidence. It might be a program agenda, copies of a publication, transcript, certificate, registration form... do I need to go on? This is actually for you in the event PMI audits you. In this case, participating in a workshop, the evidence is not required to actually complete the PDU request online. Because PMI has updated their website, I think it's important you know the new process. Know your PMI ID #, Cert #, and Last Name on file with PMI.
Step 1: Log into the PMI homepage. A Membership Status box will appear in the left navigation menu with the following data: PMI ID No.: Member Since: Expires:
A Certification Status box will also appear in the left navigation menu with the following data: PMP No.: Earned: Renewal Date
Within that Certification Status box, at the bottom, is a link titled "View PDUs" (If you follow the link before logging in, you'll be asked to do so at that time)
Step 2: Select the " " link Step 3: In the left navigational column, select Report professional development units (PDUs) Step 4: Select a PDU category and sub-category (if applicable) ("2e" for participating in a workshop) Step 5: Select the Next button Step 6: Complete the entire form (know the knowledge area and process group) Step 7: Select the Next button Step 8: Review for accuracy and enter the number of PDUs (if given the option) Step 9: Select the Next button Step 10: Select the checkbox, agreeing to the accuracy of the claim and Select the Submit button
Go back and review your Online Transcript in a few days to verify your submission was successful.
See, it's not as hard as you thought!
I welcome any questions you may have about the process.
