How to earn PMI PDUs in Nigeria

PDUs are Professional Development Unit used as a metrics to maintain PMI credentials. 1 PDU is approximately 1 hour of Project Management engagement aligned with the Project Management Body of Knowledge, 5th Edition. A credential holder is expected to have a certain number of PDU per 3-year cycle. There are plenty opportunities to adhere towards this Continued Certification Requirement (CCR) program but I will group them into Education and Giving Back to the Profession.






Although there are limits to the number of PDUs for Giving Back to the Profession, it still remains the most effective way of aligning to PMI intention of professional development:



  1. Creating new content. Write project management-related books and articles for professional print or electronic publications. If you’re web savvy, write a blog for your company or organization, or present a podcast or webinar.



  1. Volunteer Service: Earn PDUs for providing your professional services to an organization or group outside of your employer; this includes any elected offices you hold for a project management organization.



  1. Doing Your Job: When you practice project (project scheduling, risk, or program) management professionallyyou can claim PDUs. If you work every day as a project manager, this counts toward credential maintenance.




For education, the are no limits to the PDUs you can earn but it is always advisable to go through a PMI Registered Education Provider in Nigeria like POeT Solvers Limited’s Please, use the table below to go through PMtutor’s numerous courses and their corresponding PDUs:
