Start by ordering your subscription to The PDU Podcast. Select either the monthly payment or yearly payment to receive a webinar every month. And if you need a lot of PDUs right now then you can buy a whole year's worth of PDUs with a one-time purchase.
The PDU Podcast comes with your personalized subscription link. Simply copy/paste this link into the podcast app on your phone or tablet and you can now access the webinars from anywhere. (See the Technical Specifications section below for recommended apps.)
This step is not required to watch the webinars on your computer.
Just press play on your phone, tablet or computer to watch your first webinar and start earning PDUs.
Each webinars is divided into several modules of 20-30 minutes in duration. In this way you can break up your learning over several sessions if you like.
You'll also receive a username and password to download your monthly PDU certificate. However, it is required by PMI® that you must take an assessment first.
So you'll have to answer 3-4 basic questions about the webinar before you can download the certificate. But don't worry. So far, every single person received their certificate on the first try.
Armed with your PDU certificate you can now visit PMI's Continuing Certification Requirements System and claim your PDUs.
Good news: Your PDUs from the podcast are pre-approved because we are PMI Authorized Training Partner (ATP).
In 30 days a new webinar will automatically be ready for you. Simply watch it, download the PDU certificate, and then claim your next PDUs.
If you purchased a whole year's worth of webinars at once, then all twelve webinars will be available to you right after the purchase. So no waiting at all.
Whenever you submit a PDU claim in the PMI CCRS online system, you are required to select a rating on a scale from one to five. All PDU Podcast webinars have received an average of four and five stars!
Our customers love the quality of what we deliver.
The PDU Podcast is 100% aligned with the PMI Talent Triangle. When you claim your PDUs on the PMI CCRS website, then you will automatically receive the appropriate amount of total PDUs.
In addition the PDUs are correctly mapped and will reflect as PDUs for the three sides of the talent triangle, which are Technical PDUs, Leadership PDUs as well as Strategic and Business PDUs.
Please see the tables below for details on how many PDUs you can earn for each webinar.
