Professional Development Units (PDUs)
If you have registered your name at the seminar(s), chapter registrar will submit PDUs to PMI on your behalf. Please give us a week after the seminar to see the PDUs in your account.
As a PMP in good standing, you need a total of 60 PDUs in three year cycle to maintain your credential. For guidelines on earning PDUs, please see the PMI credentials handbook.
If you do not meet the PDUs within the PMP active dates, you will be placed in suspended status for one year. During this period, you will need to earn the remaining PDUs to activate your PMP credentials. For more information, please refer to your PMP credential handbook.
1 PDU is earned for each hour of project management learning. Our breakfast sessions are typically 4 hours so you would earn 4 PDUs. Lunch sessions are usually 1 hour long thus you would earn 1 PDU.
PMP Exam Preparation
To obtain the PMP credentials you must meet the eligibility requirements outlined in the credential handbook before appearing for PMP exam. For more information, please refer to the PMP Credential Handbook.
You need to have 35 hours of project management education.
Every year OVOC coordinates two or three sessions for PMP exam preparation. Please check our website for more info.
