Hello,

I already completed my PMP certification 5 years ago and I am thinking of doing my PMP-ACP certificate now. Can I use the 40 PDU's from the PMP-ACP prep-cast (assuming I pass the test) and apply those also to my PMP?

Ie. Is it considered double dipping in a way?

Thanks,
Brad

Brad,

Yes! This is 100% the way to go. Your PMI-ACP Exam prep with The Agile PrepCast will count "twice":

- First you can submit it as your required agile training hours for the ACP exam
- Second, you can claim 31.5 technical, 6 leadership, and 3 strategic PDUs for your PMP renewal.

Hi Cornelius, I have the same question. I just passed the prepcast course and I already have my PMP cert, but I'd like to apply for the PMI ACP too. You said, first submit the prepcast as contact hours for the PMI-ACP Exam application, and THEN submit as PMI PDUs. I'm not quite ready to schedule my PMI-ACP exam, but would like to report my PMP PDUs now. Can I report the PMP PDUs FIRST, then report the contact hours for PMI-ACP when I'm ready to apply? Thanks!

Hi Cornelius,
I am in the same situation now, i passed my PMP exam 3 years back and now have completed the Agile prepcast course. Can you tell me how many PDUs i can claim for my PMP renewal for this course? I would really appreciate if you could break it down as per the updated PDUs category.

Syed,

Please see here: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FDTPj8qg.../edit#gid=1549263222

Scroll all the way to the bottom where you can see the PDU numbers.

Hi Cornelius,
After completing the course and passing the exam, i have submitted my PDUs as per the attached google sheet. Now the PMI has asked for additional documents for my claim, and i have submitted the PDUs certificate in the supporting documents. what else would i need to submit?

Syed,

Usually, that's all that is required and based on student feedback it takes PMI often just a day or so to approve the claim.
