What is a PDU?

A PDU is a Professional Development Unit and a key term in the PMI® community. One hour of planned, structured and measured learning activities equals one PMI® PDU. For online or e-Learning courses that award PDU credits, PDU determination for a course is made by taking the average time it takes at least 10 people to complete the course from start to finish. PDUs are hours of required training to maintain a PMI® credential, such as the PMP® and PgMP® certifications. When you take courses online to earn PDUs at Point Advantage, your total learning time in an online course closely approximates the PDU hours or PDU credits awarded.

Changes in PDU Reporting at PMI®

As of December 1, 2015, all PMI credential holders will need to report PDUs earned in one or more of the new Talent Triangle categories. For PMP® credential holders with anniversary dates between December 1, 2015 and November 30, 2017, PDUs are to be reported based on the new categories, without the need to meet the minimum requirement of 8 PDUs in each category. For credential holders with an anniversary date on or after December 1, 2017, PDUs are to be reported based on the new categories where at least 8 PDUs have been earned in each Talent Triangle category.
