The Project Management Institute recently announced changes to its Continuing Certification Requirements program. Here are seven things you need to know to maintain your certification.

Any PDUs earned on courses taken and submitted before December 1st can be claimed in the current CCR (Continuing Certification Requirements) system and will count toward recertification as normal. PDUs earned on December 1st and beyond will need to align to the new skill categories.
Yes, Learning Tree is aligning its existing PDU-approved courses with the three skill categories of the PMI Talent Triangle. Future courses submitted for PDU-approval will also be aligned with this new system.
