Updated 10 Step Help To Submit PMP PDUs

I’m in the process of helping my client make their submissions for PMI Professional Development Units (PDUs). All PMPs need 60 PDUs during a CCR cycle so don’t put it off until the last minute. In this case, my client participated in a workshop. If you want to collect PDUs, you’re going to need some kind of evidence. It might be a program agenda, copies of a publication, transcript, certificate, registration form… do I need to go on? This is actually for you in the event PMI audits you. In this case, participating in a workshop, the evidence is not required to actually complete the PDU request online.  Because PMI has updated their website, I think it’s important you know the new process.

Know your PMI ID #, Cert #, and Last Name on file with PMI.

Step 1: Log into the PMI homepage.
A Membership Status box will appear in the left navigation menu with the following data:
Member Since:

A Certification Status box will also appear in the left navigation menu with the following data:
PMP No.:
Renewal Date

Within that Certification Status box, at the bottom, is a link titled “View PDUs
(If you follow the link before logging in, you’ll be asked to do so at that time)

Step 2: Select the “View PDUs” link
Step 3:
In the left navigational column, select Report professional development units (PDUs)
Step 4:
Select a PDU category and sub-category (if applicable) (“2e” for participating in a workshop)
Step 5: Select the Next button
Step 6:
Complete the entire form (know the knowledge area and process group)
Step 7: Select the Next button
Step 8:
Review for accuracy and enter the number of PDUs (if given the option)
Step 9:
Select the Next button
Step 10: Select the checkbox, agreeing to the accuracy of the claim and Select the Submit button

Go back and review your Online Transcript in a few days to verify your submission was successful.

See, it’s not as hard as you thought!

I welcome any questions you may have about the process.
