PDU requirement is changing effective December 2015 for renewal. I am PMP since last month and If I plan to earn all the 60 PDU's before December 2015, will I be filling in the requirement based on the current PDU requirement or changed requirement?
I read an article where it says the new requirement is effective for certain certification expiry dates earlier or before, which is leaving me confused.
I am in process of starting my ITIL Foundation certification which would get me 30 PDU's what catageory would that PDU would fall in?
First of all... DON"T WORRY! PMI has a very long timetable for this particular change. It will take up to 3 years until everyone is switched over to the new system.
The final decisions on how things are changing and when exactly they are changing will be made public by PMI in the next 3-4 months. Until then we just have to wait. So for the time being we can pretty much say that "nothing changes" and you can continue to earn & claim PDUs as before.
For more details, please listen to my PM Podcast interview with John Kleine from PMI, where he explains many of the changes:
How funny that you should ask this, because we just worked on that yesterday in the CCRS. It is as follows:
Technical 28, Leadership 2.5, and Strategic 4.5 = 35
Please note that this is only of importance if you watch The PM PrepCast AFTER you passed your PMP exam and use it to earn PDUs. The CCRS system will automatically apply these numbers for you.
This if of absolutely ZERO consequence to you, if you are watching The PM PrepCast IN PREPARATION of your exam and submit "Contact Hours" on your PMP application. In this case it's simply "35 Contact Hours" without any of the talent triangle categories.
Until Next Time,
