Professional Development Units (PDUs) are necessary for renewal of PMI credentials. You must report and track your PDUs in the Continuing Certification Requirements System (CCRS) at: submissions are subject to audit by PMI for verification by PMI-NAC.

Your submissions are subject to audit by PMI for verification by PMI-NAC.

You can earn PDUs in various ways.

  • Attend chapter meetings. Further instructions are below on this page. Events such as these with two or fewer PDUs are not inventoried on the PMI Global reporting site.

  • Attend special training events and seminars. These items typically offer more than two PDUs.   Follow the reporting instructions on the sheet you're given at the event.

  • Volunteer for PMI-NAC activities.

  • Serve on the Board of Directors of PMI-NAC

Note the link to all the various credential handbooks which should answer your other PDU questions.
