Earning PDUs Made Easy

Are you frustrated with the time it takes to earn the Professional Development Units (PDUs) to renew your Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification? Maybe you need to balance work and family responsibilities and don’t know how you will get your required PDUs? The perfect solution is here: The PDU Podcast. It’s fast, convenient and affordable.

The PDU Podcast is easy. Simply add your PDU Podcast subscription to a free or premium podcast app on your phone or tablet. Now press play to watch the initial webinar and start earning your first PDU. And 30 days later the next webinar will be waiting for you. Fully automatically!

Alternatively you can chose to watch the webinars on your computer, and if you need a bunch of PDUs right now then you can purchase a whole year's worth of webinars at once.

And it's Affordable, Too!

Subscriptions to The PDU Podcast start at $9.15 per PDU earned.

Play. Watch. Earn PDUs. Repeat.

Yeah... It's as easy as that.

Here's how it works

Step 1

Order The PDU Podcast

Order Now

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.


Step 2

Add it to Your App

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.


Step 3

Watch Your First Webinar

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.


Step 4

Download Your PDU Certificate

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.


Step 5

Claim Your PDUs

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 Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.)


Step 6

Repeat

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.


Like we said above: Yeah... it's as easy as that!

Our PMI CCRS Rating is Four and Five Stars

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!
