- What will be required documents to prove the claim in case of Audit.

Thanks and Regards

Hello Muhammad

This is explained in PMI's CCR Handbook which you can find at

You will see on page 14 that 'teaching' is specifically listed as one of the "Giving Back" activities. Each hour that you spend teaching qualifies for 1 PDU, up to a maximum of 25 hours (see page 7 for maximum).

This means, that if all 45 hours of your teaching are relevant to project management then you can claim 25 PDUs in this category. If fewer than 25 hours are relevant to project management then you should only claim as many as are appropriate.

PMI says: "Documentation for audit: Evidence supporting your coaching or mentoring arrangement, including notes from and dates of discussions and activities. " So keep a copy of the class syllabus and calendar showing when you taught.

All PDUs are claimed only at
Until Next Time,
