Work as a Practitioner - PDU
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?

In my view, max 8 PDU's set for Work as Practisioner should be increased to atleast 20 and it should be made mandatory i.e. include as within talent triangle ---- change to talent quadrangle.

Could you please explain the rationale behind this opinion? Personally I do not agree with it one bit; also this talent triangle requirement is a bit of a stretch. We all want to be as well rounded as possible, but the reality is in life we get exposed to a pretty narrow niche and we have to perform at high levels within it.

The field of PM is so vast, I am reluctant to believe trying to cover a wide range like this (forceful in a way) has a positive impact on the majority to the point where it is worth the time and effort...

Great feedback.

Thanks a lot Markus !!
Good proposal. I think everything is available in CCR's handbook. There is a mx. of PDU's as practitioner!!
Hi Everyone,

I have taken a snap from the CCR Handbook updated to October 2017 from http://www.pmi.org/-/media/pmi/documents/p...ts-handbook.pdf

It says that we can only apply for Work as a Practitioner ONCE PER CYCLE. Does it mean that we have to ask for 8 PDU in one unique shot?

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.

Yes, you can only claim 8 PDU’s for working as a practitioner in a 3 years cycle at the end of the cycle.

I had thought that it needed to be at the end of the cycle as well. However, there is at least one entry in this thread that documents an attempt to enter it within the first year of the cycle (& their first year of certification), based on a date span of less than 6 months, and it was auto-approved like most 'work as a practitioner' entries.

It would probably be worthwhile for the PMI staff to update the guidance a bit to make this clearer.
Always return to the CCR Handbook for these questions. Be sure to pull the most current copy from the PMI website as the rules do change. With that, the cut-and-paste posts here have been helpful and answered most of the questions. It's the subtleties where we are good and swarming and resolving a specific situation to the best of our ability. Ultimately, PM decides so a phone call to them might be your last and best resource.

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
Thanks Markus,
Exactly what I needed to know.
