Where do you get most of your PDUs?
Network:3002



I have noticed that many PMP's seem to struggle with collecting the necessary PDUs. I have not, but for the sake of others I thought I would ask this question.

For myself, I have gained PDUs from the following:
- ProjectManagement.com webinars (at least half come from this)
- Paid training (some of this is from the training for the next certification)
- Conferences (I usually attend one or two a year)
- Online conferences offered on ProjectManagement.com (like PMXPO, Talent Mgt, etc)
- Local chapter offerings (attended a PM Saturday)
- Training offered through company (we have extensive online training)
- Lynda.com (just started using this resource that I can access for free through our library)

I know there are many other options, but this is my path. Please share your own path for the others who may be struggling a bit.

Work experience and reading made up some of mine. Many came from the webinars on this site. I like that I just have to find an hour for a webinar at a time. Compared to carrying a book around for several days, plus having to track my time. Another benefit of the webinars is that they are self-documenting in case of an audit.

Being deployed and having many constraints the only way I earn PDUs are: PM.com webinars, online conferences and reading books.

Majority of mine come from reading, writing and publishing/presenting content. I used to get a lot from volunteering as well both with my local Chapter and PMI's GOC but most of my volunteering these days is in the form of mentoring.

I'm surprised to hear of other's struggles with earning PDU's. Most come from webinars, with sprinkled PDU's from reading, writing, training/education.

Does anyone listen to podcasts for PDUs, and if so, which ones? It looks like you can earn PDUs with PM Podcast. Any others?

I have looked at some podcasts on this site and the Projectified podcasts on PMI. I have not taken the time yet to listen to them yet. I am not sure how to claim them.

Projectmanagement.com webinars
At work training - we were sent to several Agile classes two years ago.
I wrote a few LinkedIn posts, one related to how I passed the PMP exam, although sharing knowledge has become less of a requirement. I removed a few of them because I realized my employers didn't like me writing about the failed projects and my supervisors asked me to remove them. I wish there was a place to write about those, though. People should know about failed projects and why they occurred. I saw so many when I worked for the government. It's why I got so passionate about it and got a PMP!

Most of my PDU's come from webinars at Projectmanagement.com, also writing and publishing content.
