Earning your certification is a big step. Maintaining it shouldn’t have to be. Our Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) Program is designed so you can grow and develop the skills that organizations are seeking — all the while maintaining your certification status.
Professional Development Units (PDUs) are one-hour blocks of time that you spend learning, teaching others, or volunteering. By accumulating and tracking these over a three-year period you can maintain your certification status with PMI. View how you can earn PDUs and how to align them to the PMI Talent Triangle®.
Our certifications require you to earn a certain number of PDUs over a 3-year cycle. For example, if you hold a Project Management Professional (PMP)® Certification, to maintain it, you’ll need to earn 60 PDUs; while others, like the Agile Certified Professional (PMI-ACP)® require 30. View the breakdown and requirements by certification.
Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification holders do not have to earn PDUs to maintain their certification. To maintain your CAPM, you must retake the exam every five years.
Visit our online Continuing Certification Renewal System (CCRS) to report PDUs and view your certification records.
