If you’ve already earned your PMP or other certification from PMI, then you are probably aware that your certification needs to be maintained. The certification cycles are three years long, with the first cycle beginning when you pass your exam. During the three year cycle, you must earn 60 Professional Development Units (PDU’s) and report them to the Project Management Institute (PMI).
Did you know that you can get one PDU for each chapter meeting you attend? Come on down to our next one and check it out!
There are various ways to earn PDU’s, such as taking classes, writing or speaking on project management, and volunteering with professional organizations such as your local PMI chapter. To report your PDU’s, please follow this link: http://www.pmi.org/CareerDevelopment/Pages/CCR-Reporting-Forms.aspx
There are a number of benefits to earning your PMP certification. Having your PMP certification can lead to career advancement in terms of job opportunities, promotions, as well as an increase in salary. Being credentialed demonstrates to others that you have the knowledge, skills and experience vital to a successful career in project management. All that aside, however, it is a great way to become more knowledgeable and effective when managing any type of project.
By attending local chapter meetings, members are able to network and share their knowledge of project management. To learn about more membership benefits, or to become a member, please follow this link: http://www.pmi.org/GetInvolved/Pages/The-Benefits-and-Types-of-Membership.aspx
