Q. How many PDU's do I get for giving a presentation to PMIRGC?
A. Under CATEGORY D: Creating New Project Management Knowledge - The presentation is self-report. 1 PDU for every 1 hr spent preparing/presenting…"Both the time required to prepare or create this knowledge and the time to present it
can be claimed for PDUs. For example, when serving as a speaker, if a credential holder spent 7.5 hours to create their presentation and 1 hour to deliver it, this would count for 8.5 PDUs. The PDUs claimed in this category count against the maximum of 45 PDUs (or, 20
PDUs for PMI-RMP and PMI-SP) allowed for “Giving Back to the Profession” categories (Categories D, E, and F)."
