Purpose: PMIRGC recognized the need for a director-level position (PDU Liaison) that rendered assistance in getting members certified through PMI as well as maintaining those credentials. The latest change to the PDU structure provided an opportunity to bring in an expert on the PDU structure to take the mystery out of getting PDUs and maintaining credentials. The PDU Liaison is also responsible for assisting the Board in getting PMIRGC-specific PDUs registered at PMI so that all attendees can easily and readily apply them towards their credential maintenance.
About the PDU Liaison: Randi Krueger has been a member of PMIRGC since 2014 and has served in a volunteer capacity since 2015. Randi has 3 different PMI certifications, gained expertise in writing applications, and applying PDUs across several different credentials. She looks forward to assisting PMIRGC members in getting and maintaining their credentials, which will set them up for success as they progress in their career and personal development.
This program is intended as a resource for all our members. Feel free to reach out to Randi with any questions on PDUs specific to your situation. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

How to Prevent Issues with Reporting Your PDUs
PDU reporting errors usually result from two specific discrepancies in data.
Member Name Reported. There is a difference between the name used to register for an event and the member’s “official” name on file at PMI Global. During registration you will be asked to confirm that your registration name is the same as your official member name on the PMI Global site. (Using your official name helps prevent reporting errors). If you prefer not to use your official member name when registering for an event, there is a place in the process for members to indicate an alternate name for their name badge.
Membership vs. Credential Number. Use your membership number. There is a difference between your membership number and your credential (certification) number. These are not the same -- and your credential number may be the same as someone else’s member number! You can find both your PMI ID and your Credential number on the dashboard page when you log in at https://ccrs.pmi.org.
During registration, enter your member number. If there is a “number” mismatch when we report the PDUs, it will err out and we will be unable to complete the process for you. If this happens, you should receive an email with information to self-report the event’s PDU(s).
