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.
Until Next Time,

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!
