Stay certified. Stay relevant.
Answer the Demands of the Profession
Once you’ve earned your certification, you’ll need to maintain it. We’ll guide you through the process.
Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) Program
The CCR program helps you grow and develop in an ever-changing business landscape. Your career is a journey, and you’ll need to stay relevant as the profession evolves and as the needs of employers grow and change. Maintaining your PMI certification is a significant competitive advantage. It keeps you relevant and helps you better position yourself as the answer to what companies demand.
Recently we’ve updated the Program to include more emphasis on employer-demanded skills as outlined in the PMI Talent Triangle. This provides the guidance you need to stay relevant and competitive in the profession. Hear why this is important to practitioners.
To stay certified, you’ll need to participate in professional development activities, and earn and report professional development units (PDUs.) There are lots of ways to earn PDUs and nearly unlimited opportunities. Discover ways to earn PDUs or report earned PDUs.
Every certification except the CAPM® requires you to earn a specific amount of PDUs per three-year certification cycle. The requirements differ for each certification, so check the handbook to find out more. For the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)®, you’ll need to retake the exam before the end of your five-year certification cycle.
3-Year Cycles | 60 PDUs per Cycle
3-Year Cycles | 30 PDUs per Cycle
