Earning the PDUs

Once the professional clears the exam and earns the PMP certification, his/her three-year certification cycle commences. 

Within this three year cycle, the individual must earn and record 60 PDUs or Professional Development Units to maintain and renew his/her PMP certification. PDUs can be earned either by continuously learning about management skills or by contributing constructively towards the management profession.

Failure to earn and record 60 PDUs within 3 years of certification cycle results in a 1 year suspension period. If the professional still fails to earn the mandatory PDUs during the suspension period, his/her PMP certification will expire and he/she would then need to apply for the credential afresh.
