Udemy Business is committed to enabling learners to effectively prepare for their project management certification exams and build skills across essential project management topics.
Prior to applying for Project Management Professional (PMP) certification with the Project Management Institute (PMI), learners will need to earn 35 contact hours. To retain PMP certification, learners must earn 60 Professional Development Units (PDUs) every three years, and then log them with PMI.
How to locate Udemy Business courses that offer PDUs / contact hours
For learners interested in accessing courses that provide PDUs / contact hours, search ‘PDU’ within the search bar in your Udemy Business account or find a complete list of courses here.
Do Udemy Business certificates of completion for PDU courses record PDU / contact hours?
Currently, the number of hours listed on the Udemy Business certificate of completion is based on the course video hours at the most recent completion. Some instructors will include the PDU / contact hours in the title of the course, but not all.
Do learners need a certificate of completion from Udemy Business or the instructor to apply for PMP certification or to log PDU hours with PMI?
No, learners can enter the course information on PMI’s website, and only need a certificate in the unlikely event of being audited by PMI.
Who can receive PDUs (aka credit hours) from the PMI?
PDUs are only earned AFTER you become a PMP or another PMI credential holder.
How many PDUs do I need to remain certified?
You need 60 PDUs over 3 years to remain certified.
I’m a PMI credential holder; how can I report PDUs with the PMI?
