there is no formula or so. It is pretty easy.
You can claim maximum 8 PDUs per cycle (3 years) and maximum 5 PDUs in one year.
first year = you claim 5 PDUs
second year = you claim 3 PDUs
third year = no PDUs for "work as a practitioner" left ...
first year = you claim 2 PDUs ofr "WaaP"
second year = you claim 3 PDUs for "WaaP"
third year = you claim another 3 PDUs for "WaaP"
Hope this makes it a bit more transparent for you.
Thanks Markus, this is spot on.
you are welcome
Great feedback Markus - Can't You also claim all 8 PDU's in the last year ?
as far as i know: No!
Max. 5 PDUs per year in this category
so, if you do not have claimed any PDUs in the first to year for "WaaP" then you are only allowed to claim max. 5 PDUs in this category for the third year ... as far as i know ... ;)
I would thing that the third year you can claim all three years at one , so the 8 PDUs in the third year!
it seems that i have mixed up the old and the new rules here a bit and cause i was unsure by myself i have rechecked in the CCR handbook now; here is what is written there regarding this topic:
CCR Handbook – updated 22 August 2016
Giving Back to the Profession
Work as a Practitioner
Working in your certified role Each day, your work in a domain area related to your certification(s) allows you to apply your knowledge and skills in a practical setting. Using these competencies actively contributes to sustaining and growing the profession.
- This activity has a maximum number of PDUs that can be claimed per cycle:
o PMP, PgMP, PfMP, PMI-PBA – no more than 8 PDUs claimed per cycle
o PMI-ACP, PMI-RMP, PMI-SP – no more than 4 PDUs claimed per cycle
You can claim Working as Professional PDUs once per certification cycle.
The PDUs claimed in this category count against the maximum PDUs allowed in the “Giving Back to the Profession” category
These PDUs only apply to your current cycle and cannot be transferred.
Documentation required for audit: Proof of employment (job description)
The important part is, that you can ONLY ONCE PER CYCLE claim PDUs in this category.
So, it seems to be absolutely useful to claim them all towards the end of the 3 year cycle.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
I am working as a Project manager from 2012 December. I haven't claimed any PDU under the WAAP for the last cycle (2011 Dec to 2014 DEC) as i already had more than enough PDU's under education & Volunteering for not for profit organizations. So, can i claim eight PDU's from the last cycle for the current cycle (Dec 22nd 2014 to Dec 21st 2017) ? Please let me know.
