Summary: If you are a paid member of PMI, you can watch recorded PMI webinars for free and claim 1 PDU per 1 hours of watching. The PDUs claimed in this way fall into Cat A: Registered Education Provider/PMI Component which has no upper limit per 3-year PMP certification cycle.

    finding webinars for claiming PDUs

Step 4 – Check your email

PMI will send you two emails almost immediately: one for acknowledging the receipt of your PDU claim and one for the approval of your PDU claim. Make sure you can receive these emails. Keep your notes on the webinar in a easily accessible place to act as an evidence for watching the webinar and I use my blog to store all lecture notes.

    Does this work for external providers? Or it needs some sort of certificate confirmation?
