Hi –
I hope you are having a good week!

I prepared a training session for the new project team for a pending contract.
It was on EVMS, and I know I can take a PDU for the training I did, but what about the prep time?
I spent 8 hours developing the slides and format – will I be able to take any credit for that?

My company is going to give training credit to the participants, too.

Have a good afternoon!

Hello Susan!

The answer is "Yes". This falls under Category D PDUs for "Creating new project management knowledge". Here is how I explained this in one of my other PDU related tips:
For each hour committed to knowledge development in the areas of project management, program management, project scheduling, or project risk one hour of professional development can be claimed and awarded as a PMP PDU. Additionally, all of the time you commit to developing this knowledge, whether it is for preparation, creation, or presentation can be claimed towards PDUs in this category. So if it takes you 3 hours to prepare and 2 hours to present then you have earned 5 PDUs.
Until Next Time,
