So I've been doing some research, and I found that you can use some 6-Sigma courses to count for 30-35 PMP PDUs.

I was wondering if anyone has encountered any other certifications that share the ability to double up for PMP PDUS? Maybe CCM, CPC, LEED, Kaizen, or maybe one of the OSHPD or DoD construction certifications?

Hi Scott,

you could try to claim PMP PDUs for almost any kind of course you do, which has some relationship to project management in some aspects at least.
For instance, if you do the ACP PrepCast you can claim I think 21 PDUs therefore towards your PMP renewal.
It is just about your justification and if PMI would acknowledge that.

Hi Siluvai
Yes, I believe you can, but the CCRS handbook would make that clear. I don't know whether you can only claim for the time spent on Agile lessons, for example.
