How do I claim PDUs for PMXPO? 

Professional development units (PDUs) are reported on behalf of all registered attendees.

Attendees must access the session and participate in the offering for a minimum of 15 minutes to obtain the PDUs offered. Each attendee must be a registered participant with their own log in which they use to access the platform in order to claim PDUs. Anyone who does not log in under their own account will be considered an auditor, and no PDUs will be awarded. Attendees may visit ccrs.pmi.org to confirm PDU reporting.
