Should I Use Free PDUs To Renew My PMP® Certificate?

Yes, you should. It’s free. Why not? 

However, it would help if you considered the following things when finding free PDUs:

1. The PDU Claim Code

What is PDU Claim Code? PDU Claim Code is a code that PMI® assigns to a particular training that was registered with PMI®. Nowadays, you can find free PDUs on the internet, and you are highly recommended to choose the free PDUs with PDU Claim Code; otherwise, you need to prepare evidence to prove how you earned the free PDUs. PMI® will approve all PDUs with PDU Claim Code automatically. However, PMI® may request you provide proof of free PDUs without a PDU Claim Code.

2. The PMI® Talent Triangle

What is the PMI® Talent Triangle? It is the ideal skillset comprised of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management expertise. To renew the PMP® certificate, you need to earn at least 8 PDUs in Technical Project Management, 8 PDUs in Leadership, and 8 PDUs in Strategic and Business Management. Therefore, you need to verify the PMI® Talent Triangle of your earned PDUs.

3. The mandatory requirement of Education PDUs

What is an Education PDU? PMI® classifies PDUs into two different categories: Education and Giving Back. While there is no compulsory requirement of Giving Back PDUs when you renew the PMP® certificate, PMI® requests that all PMPs earn at least 35 Education PDUs every 3-year cycle. It’s beneficial to check if PDUs qualify for Education PDU.
