How to Get PMI PDUs Using PDU Webinars (2019)

PDU webinars

If you are trying to get the PMI PDUs you need to renew your PMP certification, look no further than PDU webinars. PDU webinars are one of the most convenient ways to meet your PDU requirements on a busy schedule.

PDUs are necessary for maintaining your credentials since they are part of PMI’s Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program. Since one PDU is worth an hour of project management training (although exceptions to this rule do exist), you will receive one PDU for every hour-long webinar that you watch. 

In order to keep your PMP certification, you are required by the Project Management Institute (PMI) to earn 60 PDUs every 3 years. Out of those 60 PDUs, there is a minimum of 35 PDUs that you must earn through educational means. 

While there are a few different ways to reach those educational PDU requirements, if you are strapped for time or simply unable to leave your house to attend a conference or event, watching a PDU webinar is one of the easiest ways to earn your PDUs because you get the option to learn about a project management topic of your choice from the comfort of your own home or office. 

With so many project management webinars out there to choose from, there’s no reason to be bored. You can choose a webinar based on the topic, language, or PMI Talent Triangle component. 

The following are our top picks for webinars that you should check out if you are trying to renew your PMP certification.
