Information for Renewing Your Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification
As of December 1, 2015, the Project Management Institute (PMI) has made changes to their requirements for PMP credential renewal. The goal is to better reflect the greater demand of PMI Talent Triangle skills by companies.
Since those skills are of higher demand than they once were, more PDUs have been dedicated to the Education category of PDUs and less to the Giving Back category. Sixty percent of all PDUs are now required in the Education category.
Looking at the Education category, the previous maximum requirement of 30 PDUs has increased to a minimum of 35 PDUs. This is a great change. It encourages individuals to dedicate more of their time obtaining PDUs in ways that further their own knowledge of project management.
An illustration of all the changes to the PMP renewal requirements is shown in the following infographic.
