Renewing the certificate
Network:1386



It is a know fact that we need 60 PDUs to renew the certificate. Minimum number of Educational PDUs is 35 and no maximum amount is defined. Is it possible to fulfill 60 PDU requirement only by educational PDUs?

Markus I beg to differ wit you on this. There is no upper limit to Educational PDUs and PMI clearly states in handbook that all 60 PDUs can be achieved from Education. According to new Talent Triangle, now these PDUS have to also be secured in the three categories of the talent triangle vertices. But my answer remains the same, YES, ALL 60 PDUs can be secured from Educational category.
Thx for clarifying.

Seems i have missunderstood something here.

You are right.

Sorry for any inconvienience guys.

Dear All,

First of all thank you very much for your kind corporation.

@Sergio, Yes, I read the handbook before raising this question and PMI help me too regarding this question.

@Markus, Regret to say that you are wrong. It is possible to earn 60 PDU only using educational PDUs. The three categories which need minimum number of PDUs are all fall under educational PDUs. Giving back PDUs has a maximum number but not a minimum number which means that it can be ‘0’. I went through your blog. It clarifies about giving back PDUs but it is not mentioned that it is mandatory to earn giving back PDUs.

@Stephane, thanks for the support given to locate the Markus’s blog.

@Kristin, Thank you and I agree with you. Thank you for your detailed email as well.

@Rami, Kindly refer to my reply to Markus’s feedback.

@Julia, Thanks!

Kind regards,
Wininda
Sounds like there is a misunderstanding from my side. It is good to know, this is the purpose of the discussions. Thanks for raising up this subject.

Hi Everyone,

Now, I am confused a little bit, I read here and there but still have some confusion. Can someone please explain to me in simple words (Without referring to any outside material) how this works ?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Rami,

We now have two categories for PDUs: Education and Giving Back.

An individual is able to maintain their credential by earning 60 PDUs in the area of Education only.

There is not a requirement that one must earn PDUs from both the Education and Giving Back categories. One, however, cannot earn all PDUs in the area of Giving Back.

I hope this helps!

Hello Kristin,

Thanks for your input - It is clearer now but for example I can gain Educational PDU's through: Webinars, Reading Articles, Publishing Articles ? What else?

Thanks.

Hello Wininda,

the straight answer to your question is: no, that isn't possible.
Please refer to the CCR Handbook like Sergio already mentioned.
Alternativly you may refer to my blog here on pm.com (unfortenatly it is not allowed to direct link to it).
I have shortly released a detailed blog entry about the CCR Changes valid since Dec 1st last year and which PDU's you need for minimum in which category's.
Hope this helps.

Regards,

Markus
A specific example of why Suhail is accurate is that you can earned as many PDUs as you can PROVIDED that you achieve the EXPLICIT required PDUs for each triangle skill sets.

so, if one educational provider can give you a training/certification that MEETS ALL talent triangle criteria - good for you!

Hey Markus,

I've been able to embed links into messages, both with and without HTML tags. I can simply copy your blog's link in the message.
http://www.projectmanagement.com/blog/pm.plus---the-PMP-Blog/

If I want to call it something else, I use HTML tags.

Hi Stephane / Markus,

I do not know how to exactly embed using HTML - I can create a Hyperlink on a word document then name it whatever I want to but when I copy and paste it, it will paste the original website address.

For example, I have this interesting article:
http://www.constructionbusinessowner.com/t...a-economics-101

If I want to name the link:
Project Managers MBA-Economics

This will be more representable and neat but how can I either do a Hyperlink here with a customized name or HTML like Stephane mentioned.

Appreciate your feedback.

Hi Rami,

constucting HTML links espacially with MS word is NOT recommonded since Word ads lot of unnecassary code ... it is not clean.

Follow Stephanes recommondation or may be use a HTML Editior like Notepad++ for constructing such links.

Hi Stephane / Markus,

This is a trial:

PMI

It is working, I guess now I can create them only on the spot in the dialogue, not copy and paste. When I click on it it does not open a new window, it take me to the other website through the same window. Is there a way to make it open a new window ?

Thanks.
