Hi,

I looked through the search and couldn't find something related, if there is a related topic about this question, I would appreciate if anyone could share the link of a previous discussion here.

PMI has tons of guides and standards, for example for WBS, Scheduling, Project Estimating and others. I imagine it is considered an obligation to read the PMBOK as I read, but the Agile Practice for example I didn't read, I just saw the PMP Prepcast videos about the subject.

So if I read the Agile Practice guide, or any other guide/standard can it be counted as a Technical PDU?

Thank you!

Yes indeed! That's exactly what I did.

I read The Agile Practice Guide in 2019, stretching it out over the course of about 4 days. (I wanted to give myself time to "internalize" what I was reading.) Each day, I would write down a couple of sentences about what I read and learned. And when I was done, I submitted my hours together with the text I had written up.

But I not only claimed PDUs in technical. I felt that some sections were leadership and some were strategic. So I did submit 1 hour for each.

@Shriram

Yes indeed! Reading PMI standards does count for PDUs.

You asked in particular about whether the Agile Practice Guide can count toward technical PDUs. The answer is yes. But... the guide also has some sections on leadership and also some on business and strategy. Here, it is up to you to estimate how much of your time was actually spent learning technical, leadership or strategic topics and submit them accordingly.
