Topic: Getting your PDUs, or How do recent changes to PMI’s CCR System affect me?
“Have you gotten your PDUs yet?”
Once we earn our PMP or other PMI certification, this question becomes an ever-present concern. For example, all PMP-holders must earn at least 60 PDUs every three years or risk losing their certifications. As we consider options for our professional development, our first question usually is, “How many PDUs will I earn?” And now many of us are worried because we have heard that the PMI CCR (Continuing Certification Requirements) system recently underwent a substantial overhaul.
Allow us to put your mind at ease—or at least arm you with needed information. This presentation reviews the new PMI CCR system and provides guidelines for you in fulfilling your PDU requirements. In addition, in this month’s meeting we will honor the volunteers who helped PMIRGC achieve so much in 2015. Please join us.
