You need to contact PMI for this. No one can advise you better than them on this specifc issue. I know that registered education providers with PMI give PDU’s but not sure about certified trainers.
You'll need to become a registered PDU provider. You can find more information about applying as REP under this link https://www.pmi.org/learning/training-development/reps/become-rep
By giving PDU’s, If you mean can the students submit for PDU’s after taking your class, then yes, your students should be able to submit PDU’s for taking your class (under education). In the submission process they will provide information about the course and the number of hours. What PMI decides to approve is up to them.
When you say Certified Trainer, certified by who? PMI
I believe you can provide Permanent Development Units (DPU) they might not be directly recognize by PMI, but required by employer or other professional organisations
PMI does NOT require that trainers or training companies register with them for providing PDUs (yet :-) ).
So long as you provide your students with proof of completion (e.g. an official certificate) indicating the date they completed the course along with some type of agenda or outline describing the content of the course, they should be able to claim it.
As Andrew says, it's up to PMI whether they will accept the student's claims, but the proof above should help them in case a claim is contested.
To make their lives easier, you should review the three legs of the Talent Triangle and decide where the content they learn will fall. My company teaches a two day procurement course and we split the PDUs as follows: 5 technical, 1 leadership & 8 strategy.
This is a very interesting feedback. Does this mean that I can deliver training like PMP and others (For example if a college requested that I do so) and my students can get PDU’s if I sign their certificate ?
You can claim PDUs for hours spent preparing and delivering PM related material. If you become an REP, you can offer PDUs. Even if you are not an REP, your students can claim PDUs; you just can't guarantee them. The PDUs might have to be categorized as Unstructured Learning. You should contact PMI to make sure.
answer i want is in the last para of your reply.. Thankyou for the interesting reply.. So let me ask you , did you tell your students before the class about PDUs as above written PMI decides to give this or not?
Rami - you absolutely can. PMI's REP program is not a "must do" for offering PDUs. That may, of course, change in the future...
Muhammad - we are a REP, so in our case, there's usually no question of PMI challenging the PDU submissions as we have to register our courses with them.
Going through Clemens link, it mentions the following:
“R.E.P.s are the only organizations authorized to offer PDUs and contact hours that are pre-approved by PMI.”
Does this mean that others still can provide training and PDU’s but it is subject to PMi’s approval so not guaranteed ?
