How to report PDU for attending PMI Talent & Technology Symposium?

No reporting is necessary, i.e. the PDUs are reported automatically to your PMI account directly with the corresponding talent areas: technical, leadership and Strategic Education for re-certification if you are a current PMI member.

The professional development units (PDUs) for all sessions viewed during the PMI Talent & Technology Symposium will be reported on your behalf by PMI if you are a current PMI member. This includes sessions that were watched live, as well as those accessed on demand. It would take 14 – 21 business days for the PDUs to be uploaded to the PMI online dashboard on which you will be able to see the PDUs reported automatically.

Otherwise, you will be able to search for and report the PDUs on pmi.org a moment later.

Note that the PDUs will be uploaded in batches. For example, if you earned 3.5 PDUs, you may not see the full amount reported to your transcript for 14 – 21 business days, you could see 1 PDU in 5 days and the full amount in 14 days.
