If you have met the prerequisites for the PMP certification exam, you should fill in PMI’s application form online in 90 days. Then, PMI will conduct a thorough review of your application. Once PMI confirms your application, you can pay for the application fee online accordingly. Then you can continue to schedule your exam. It is essential that you make good preparation for the exam. But successfully passing the exam is not enough, and you still have to renew the PMP certification every 3 years. It is fortunate that you don’t need to retake any exam and you just have to make a PMP update. 60 PDUs are required for the renewal of the PMP certification.
What is the PDU? It is called professional development units. In order to help PMP certificate holders continue their education and maintain the quality and authority of the PMP certification, PMP certificate holders must accumulate PDUs to get the certificate. Because any certificate needs to be tested and then issued, but many people will forget the knowledge after the test. Therefore, accumulating PDUs can help most people enhance their theoretical knowledge after the exam. If you have not accumulated enough PDUs within three years, your PMP certification will be directly invalidated. PMI will provide a certain period for PMP holders who have not undergone certificate renewal. During this period, you can accumulate enough PDUs by attending training institutions and then renew the certificate. And if we do not accumulate enough PDUs, and do not renew the certificates within the certain period, then your PMP certification will be invalidated. We first need to check whether the PMP certification has expired in the personal account on the PMI website. If it expires, we need to retake the PMP exam.
How can you obtain PDU and renew the PMP certification? To renew the PMP certification, you first have to collect 60 PDUs. You can obtain PDU in two sections, including “Education” and “Giving Back”. You must earn at least 35 PDUs under the former category and 25 PDUs under the later one. Here are some ways to earn PDUs. First of all, you can read books, and you can make a reading list in the project management, leadership and strategic business management. Secondly, you can watch movies in the field of Talent Triangle. In addition, you can attend online courses. After you have earned 60 PDUs, you can fill out the renewal application and then pay for the renewal fee. If you are a PMI member, you only need to pay 60 dollars. And if not, you have to pay 150 dollars. Finally, you can receive confirmation by PMI in the certain period. Make sure that you will finish the renewal process before the end of this period. Otherwise, the PMP certification will be invalidated.
