Hello Cornelius,
I completed a Master's Degree Program in Engineering Projects and Systems Management from Kingston University London, probably classified as a third party.
With two core modules as follows:
1.) Engineering Projects and Risk Management-ME7712 and
2.) An individual Project Course work-ME7761.
How many PDUs can i claim and how can this be reported.

Best regards,
Jude Tongo

This is explained in the CCRS Handbook under "Course or Training" where it says:
  • 1 hour of instruction equals 1 PDU
  • When only a portion of a course relates to topics relevant to the PMI Talent Triangle skill areas, calculate PDUs by the percentage of the overall curriculum focused on the applicable topic
  • Report each course separately. Entire degree programs will not be recognized for PDU credits, only individual courses

For you this simply means that you have to first determine how long each of these two courses where (hours of duration that you attended), second you have to determine on which talent triangle area the courses fall (based on the course titles probably 'technical project management'), and third you have to submit each course separately to PMI by visiting ccrs.pmi.org
