  • Welcome back to The PDU Insider Podcast. My name is Cornelius Fichtner. I am a PMP and your PDU Guide.   With me and the PDU Insider you can earn your PDUs efficiently and effectively.  (Intro Music)

  • In every episode of The PDU Insider I answer one question that we receive from our audience. (that's you... in case you were wondering...) This question is :   "I have heard that PMI is changing the PDU Categories in 2011. What do you know about this?"
  • Here is the answer:    (Instructions: Insert a # into the text to indicate where a new bullet appears)   #Here is my answer to you: You are correct.  PMI is indeed changing the CCR PDU Categories. Starting March 1st, 2011 the new categories will take effect. Here is the information that PMI has published so far:   The good news is that the three-year renewal cycle, the number of PDUs required to maintain your credential and the re-certification fee will remain the same. So no change here. #Here are some of the key changes to the program: Simplification to the CCR category structure, reducing the number of categories from 18 to 6 Ensuring that all categories use the rule that one hour of learning activity is equivalent to one PDU Expanding the categories to include Web 2.0 learning opportunities Adding limits on certain categories to require that all credential holders pursue project management continuing education as part of maintaining their credential Not much more is known at this time.   #What does all of this mean to you? Well... until March of 2011 nothing will change and you can continue to earn your PDUs as before. By March 2011 we are all going to have to learn the new CCR rules & PDU categories and we'll have to earn & report PDUs accordingly. We will continue to keep you updated on all of these changes in the coming months and make sure that you know what's coming your way.     That was today's Ask Cornelius.
