Do I have to make notes while watching webinars to get PDUs?
Hello. I'd like to earn PDUs by watching webinars. Do I have to make any notes or tables while watching webinar videos to prove my attendance to PMI? Or will simple watching be enough? What will I have to provide in case of PMI review?

In case your claim gets audited or rejected for some reason, having a journal of what you learned from the webinar would help. However, if the webinar was from this community, I doubt you'd need it because the PDUs are automatically submitted for you (AFAIK).

It doesn't hurt to have notes but you don't need to as far as I am aware because if you are watching a webinar on PMI website, your PDUs get reported automatically and if you are watching a webinar elsewhere, then having an email confirming you attendance is more than enough - For example. IIBA sends an email for attendess following each webinar and this is more than enough proof of attendance.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Kiron and Rami
Not only does PMI automatically submit your PDUs from the projectmanagement.com webinars (live or on-demand) but it also automatically approves them. Since it does so, I can't see them coming back to audit something that is an automatic privilege.

You must make sure to watch the complete webinar. If you miss a certain amount (10%?), you won't get the PDU for it.
I the webinar is from projectmanagement.com, PDU will be automatically submitted. You will receive an e-mail telling you the PDU has been submitted, and, after PMI revision, a new e-mail will be received, informing you of the approbation of the PDU.

I don't know about you, Verónica, but I always get the submitted and approved emails together for the webinars. There is no PMI review happening.

I always earns PDU´s by viewing webinars in this site. Because the amount of needed PDUs I started watching too soon. Adding to that webinars help me to take knowledge in some points. So, in my personal experience, while I take notes of things that can be usefull for me because the posibility to stop the video and start again, I never received the directive to demostrate I was there mainly because the PDU´s are acredited in automatic.
