How do you calculate the PDU's to be claimed for Work as Practitioner. Does this have any formula or years of experience gets? How do we put PDUs against Work as a Practitioner experience?

Hi Aejaz,

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.

Example:
first year = you claim 5 PDUs
second year = you claim 3 PDUs
third year = no PDUs for "work as a practitioner" left ...

2nd exmaple:
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.

Regards,

Markus

Hi Markus, I couldn't found that rule restriction about the 5 pdus max per year in the latest CCR handbook.
do you know where can I find that rule description?

Hi Rami,

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 ... ;)

That's Interesting as I recall I read somewhere that you can redeem all at once at the third year but maybe I am mistaken :-)

Well Guys,

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.

PDU Rules:
- 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.

Regards,

Markus

Hi All,

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.

Thanks,
Raj

PDUs do not carry over to the next 3 year cycle. For example, I earned 120+ last certification cycle, but only 60 were needed. The remaining 60 are lost, and cannot be counted in the next 3 year cycle.
