While your local chapter provides many PDU opportunities such as meetings, committees, and seminars, it is the responsibility of the individual PMP to obtain and submit PDU information. You alone can ensure you are securing and submitting PDUs to fulfill the re-certification requirement.  For your convenience, NCPMI keeps signed registration lists in the event of an audit by PMI.

Professional Development Unit Program Update: 

Certified Project Management Professionals (PMPs) are required to submit documentation annually that they have accumulated a minimum number of hours of continuing professional education, Professional Development Units (PDUs), in order to maintain the PMP certification.

Please check your re-certification expiration date and send your qualifying PDU information to PMI HQ as soon as possible. This will eliminate any problems with PMI, and ensure that you retain your PMP certification for which you have worked long and hard, in good standing.

Submitting PDU Information

All information and forms for PMI's Professional Development Program are found on the PMI.org site. 

If you have questions about PDUs or the certification process in general, contact PMI at 1-610-356-4600 (option 8 on the phone menu) or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
