In order to retain the PMP credential, Project Management Professionals (PMPs) are required to demonstrate an ongoing professional commitment to the field of project management. The vehicle for this demonstration is the Professional Development Unit (PDU). Typically, one PDU is earned for each hour spent in "planned, structured learning experience or activity."
To assist its members, the Central Mass chapter maintains PDU information for each of its events. This information is handed out to particpants on the PDU receipt at each Chapter meeting or event. Additionally, the PDU information is maintained on the Chapter website.
The Continuing Certification Requirements Program Handbook, located on the PMI web site, provides further detail and answers to most questions you may have about obtaining and reporting PDU?s. PMPs should refer to the information that is needed when reporting PDU information for Continuing Certification Requirements.
PDU reporting information is located on the PDU Archive Document Repository accessible by chapter members.
