David J. Lanners PMP: How PMPs can earn PDU for FREE

Number of View: 14224

Dear Friends,

The enclosed summary and attached one-page “printer-friendly” guide reflect the changes to the recertification program(s) implemented by PMI on March 1, 2011.

The guide was developed in response to the following question posed by a very successful executive: “If a PMP or PMP candidate will waste his/her own money on pedestrian education and/or training, how careful are they likely to be with somebody else’s money?”

——————————————–

Project Management Professionals earn PDUs without spending money…
.
To earn PDUs without spending money, we suggest you consider Category C, D, and E.
Category C Activities that we recommend are:

Self-Directed Learning. You may earn 1 PDU for every hour spent in self-directed learning such as reading articles, books, or instructional manuals, watching videos, using interactive CD-ROMs, podcasts, or other source material, having formal discussions with colleagues, co-workers, clients, or consultants, being coached.
Documentation required upon PMI audit/request: Evidence supporting reported learning such as dated notes.
Category D Activities that we recommend are:

Presenting in a webinar, developing course content for project management related courses, serving as a speaker or instructor for project management related courses and presentations.
You may have a series of “formal” presentations over lunch in your employee cafeteria scheduled by your training department. Keep a copy of the formal announcement, a copy of the AGENDA, and a list of the attendees. Both the time required to prepare or create this knowledge and the time to present it can be claimed for PDUs. If you spent 7.5 hours to create your presentation and 1 hour to deliver it, this would count for 8.5 PDUs.
Member or moderator of a panel discussion at a conference, symposium workshop or formal event at which you are serving as a subject matter expert in project management. 1 PDU earned per hour of prep and delivery.
Note: PDUs claimed in this category count against the maximum of 45 PDUs allowed for PMP credential holders in the “Giving Back to the Profession” categories (Categories D, E, and F).
Documentation required upon PMI audit/request: Copies of educational materials OR course agendas.
Category E Activities that we recommend are:

Volunteer (non-compensated) service to a non-profit organization (PMI or non-PMI). To claim PDUs for service as an elected or appointed PMI committee member, you must serve in that role for a minimum of three months. However, providing pro-bono (free) project management services to any non-profit community group earns 1.0 PDU for each full hour of volunteer (non-compensated) service regardless of elapsed months.
Delivering free PM-related services to a non-profit community group enables you to earn PDUs much faster than serving on a PMI Chapter committee which requires a minimum of three (3) months service to qualify.
Note: PDUs claimed in this category count against the maximum of 45 PDUs allowed for PMP credential holders in the “Giving Back to the Profession” categories (Categories D, E, and F).
Documentation required upon PMI audit/request: Letter or certificate from the organization served acknowledging you for your project management related service or role in coaching mentoring others.
Category F (Working as a Project Manager)

Working as a Professional in Project Management. You can earn a total of 5 PDUs per 12 month period or 15 total PDUs per cycle for credential holders.
Documentation required upon PMI audit/request: Proof of employment (Job description).
* Certification programs sponsored by non-profit organizations cannot require that only commercially sold (fee paid) courses qualify for certification or recertification. If you are a PMP, you have the designation that PMI promotes as being associated with professionalism in project management. That designation (or other similar certifications) likely qualify you to present material that is consistent with the PMBOK Guide in order to earn PDUs for helping educate others in the profession. Since the PMP designation is intended to promote professionalism in project management, you are doing so in an honorable way when you teach others in a manner consistent with the PMBOK Guide.
This summary reflects program changes implemented by PMI on March 1, 2011.

====================================================

The original article written 3 years ago

To earn PDUs without spending money, we suggest only Category 2 and Category 5 activities.

Category 2 Activities that we recommend are:

2C – Speaker on project management topic at a conference, symposium, workshop or formal course. (10 PDUs per activity) . . .

[You may have a series of "formal" presentations over lunch in your employee cafeteria scheduled by your training department. Simply, keep a copy of the formal announcement, a copy of the AGENDA, and a list of the attendees who
participated. The length of the presentation is not important. However, the content must be "generic" project management.]

2E – Member or moderator of a project management panel discussion at a conference, symposium workshop or formal course. (5 PDUs per activity) [This category is for those who are presenting "simultaneously" with othermindividuals. If your solo presentation is part of a "series" of topics being presented by different members of your team over any period of time, then use Category 2C.]

2G – Developer of content for a structured project management learning program. (10 PDUs per activity) [You can earn 10 PDUs for developing the materials that you present in "2C" above.]

2H – Practitioner of project management services for more than 1,500 hours per year. (5 PDUs per year for a maximum of 15 PDUs per CCR cycle for sub designation 2H) Documentation Required: Copies of “sample” educational materials and/or program agendas.

2SDL – May include informal activities such as discussions or coaching sessions with colleagues, co-workers, clients or consultants. It may include articles, books, instructional manuals, videos, CDs, or other material resources. Use the “Self-directed Learning Activities Worksheet” with the CCR Activity Reporting Form. (1 PDU per hour of self-directed learning for a maximum of 15 PDUs per CCR cycle for sub designation 2SDL) Documentation required: If audited, PMPs should be able to provide evidence supporting their reported learning project. This may include notes from and dates of discussions or reading.

The distinction between 2SDL “informal activities” and 2C, 2E, & 2G “formal course” is mostly the existence of a “Program Announcement” and “Program Agenda” (with. learning objectives), List of attendees, Presenter BIO (showing credentials such as MBA, PMP, etc.), and some form of quality feedback opportunity for participants.

Category 5 Activities that we recommend are:
“Provide project management related services to a community or charitable group.” (5 PDUs per year for a maximum of 20 PDUs per CCR cycle for Category 5) Documentation Required: PMPs should maintain a “thank you letter” or certificate from the organization served acknowledging the participation of the PMP.

* Certification programs sponsored by non-profit organizations cannot require that only commercially sold (fee paid) courses qualify for PDUs. If you are a PMP, you have a designation that PMI promotes as being associated with professionalism in project management. That certainly qualifies you to present material that is consistent with the PMBOK Guide in order to earn PDUs for helping to educate others in the profession. The primary purpose of the PMP designation is to promote professionalism in project management, and you are doing that in an honorable way when you teach others in a manner consistent with the PMBOK
Guide.

I wish you success.

  • Mohamed Rafik

    Thanks a lot David for this blog entry.

    Got some questions.

    Does our presentation should have or should be part of “series” of presentations to claim under category 2C & 2G? Can we have provide a ‘single’ training around 2 hours of duration on project management topic to our collegues to claim under 2C and 2G category ?

    If answer is ‘Yes’ for series of presentations, then why is that needed and what is the defintion for ‘series’ ?

    Many Thanks!
