At this time it is the members’ responsibility to submit PDU claims for events they attend.

2. What do I need to retain to prove that I attended an event?

For audit purposes, you need to keep a record of events attended, including a description of each of the events. You also need to keep the receipts provided to you by PMI-VI for each event, including dinner meeting events.

3. When should I report my PDU activities?

PMPs are responsible for reporting all of their professional development activities, ideally as they occur.

4. Should I save up all my claims and do it all at once, or as I receive them?

It is up to you. However, we suggest that you submit your claims as you earn them.

7. How are PDUs tracked for PMI-VI events?

Receipts are easily printed upon purchasing your ticket. The Chapter keeps a record of attendance at events as back up, in case the claim is ever audited. We urge you to make use of the automated system and remind you that reporting is the responsibility of the member.

8. Can I claim PDUs for activities performed before I got my certification?

If you have not yet achieved your PMP, you can not accumulate PDUs for later. The PDU process only applies to maintaining your professional certification. Before reciept of your PMP, they are referred to as Education Units.

No. The CAPM credential is renewed by retaking the CAPM examination which includes the updates to the PMBOK Guide that have occurred over the last five years.
