Frequently Asked Questions
Will I earn Professional Development Units (PDUs)?
Yes! Your PDUs are important, and we’ve aligned this bundle with the PMI Talent Talent Triangle™ making it easy for you to submit them with PMI®. Once you have finished each course in the bundle, our system will generate a Certificate of Completion for your records. We’ve created step-by-step instructions to claiming your PDUs here.
What is the Talent Triangle, and how does it impact my PDUs?
PMI requires that you earn a minimum number of 8 PDUs in Technical Project Management, Leadership, and Strategic and Business Management categories. This series provides PDUs in all categories!
What if I already took one of these courses in this series? Can I get a discount?
If you’ve already taken one of the courses in this series, we recommend that you instead use our Build Your Own Bundle tool and create a bundle that includes courses you have not yet taken. You can build this exact series and simply replace the course you have already taken with a new one. Our BYOB tool provides a discount based on the number of PDUs you are bundling, so you can still get a discount!
