If you are here, this probably means that you already hold a PMP® certification and are looking to renew it. So first of all, a salute to you from us, at IntelliSteps, for your wit and determination, with which you earned the prestigious PMP® credential. After all, not everyone holds the mark of respect that PMP® brings with it.
It is hence never a wise decision to let your hard-earned PMP® go. And this is exactly why IntelliSteps has crafted for you an extremely easy way to earn the required 60 PDUS for your PMP® renewal.
Earning PMP® Certification is a complex process. It needs investment in terms of time, money, as well as energy. You go through a hectic exam preparation process, and finally, after a lot of efforts, you get to get hold of your PMP® certification. As such, letting it go after a period of 3 years isn’t sensible enough.
When you opt to renew your PMP® certification,
Renewing your PMP® certification allows you to:
Step 1: Earn 60 PDUs As you may know by now, you need 60 PMI PDUs to renew your PMP® certification. There are various ways you can earn these PDUs, such as by attending webinars/classes/seminars/online training, engaging in self-directed learning, or by mentoring and voluntarily taking up project management sessions for others.With IntelliSteps Renew PMP® Program, you can earn all your 60 PDUs at once while sitting right at your home. The course has been designed to enable you to keep up with your professional development and further upskill yourself as an efficient project manager. And you can do all this right from the convenience of your home.
Step 2: Claim Your PDUS in PMI’s CCRS Now enter the details of your earned PDUs in Continuing Certification Requirements System (CCRS) at PMI’s website. You can visit https://ccrs.pmi.org/ and log in with your username and password to enter the details of your earned PDUs.
Step 3: Keep the Documented Proof Ready for a Potential Audit It is always recommended to keep a documented proof of your earned PDUs safe with you for at least a period of 18 months after the completion of your CCR cycle. It is necessary since PMI often randomly selects applicants for the audit, and asks them to submit the proof for the claimed PDUs.
With IntelliSteps, you need not worry about the documented proof, as we provide each of our participants with a soft copy certificate of the earned PDUs. This certificate comes handy in case you are asked to submit the proof for your earned PDUs to PMI.
Step 4: Fill the PMP® Renewal Application Form Next step is to fill in the PMP® renewal application form to renew your credential for another 3 years. You can fill in the form here – PMI’s PMP® Renewal Application Form
Step 5: Pay the Renewal Fee The last step is to submit the renewal fee to PMI. If you are a PMI member, you will have to submit USD $60 as the PMP® renewal fee. However, if you are a Non-member, you will be required to pay USD $150 for your PMP® renewal.
Upon successful completion of IntelliSteps Renew PMP® program, you will be able to:
Q. What are PDUs?
PDUs are Professional Development Units. They are the measuring units that can be earned either by spending time in attending classes, seminars, webinars, and self-directed learning, or by giving back to the profession by volunteering, mentoring, and other such activities. 1 PDU is equal to one hour of activity.
Q. What is the difference between PDUs and Contact Hours?
Both Contact Hours and PDUs indicate the hours spent in professional learning or activity. However, Contact Hours are what you earn before earning your PMP® certification, while PDUs are what you need after getting PMP® certified so as to renew your certification for another 3 years.
Q. What is CCR?
CCR stands for Continuing Certification Requirements. It is a program designed by PMI to enable its certification holders to update their earned PDUs in the CCR system (CCRS).
Q. When exactly does my CCR cycle begins?
Your CCR cycle begins the day you pass your PMP® certification exam.
Q. How long does the PMP® certification remain valid for?
Your PMP® certification remains valid for a period of 3 years, after which it must be renewed to keep its active status maintained.
Q. How many PDUs are required to renew my PMP® certification?
You are required to earn 60 PDUs every 3 years to keep your PMP® certification valid.
Q. Are PDUs transferrable?
Yes, a portion of the PDUs earned for one certification cycle can be transferred to another cycle. However, please note that only the PDUs earned during the last year of your certification cycle can be transferred, and the maximum PDUs that can be transferred are 20.
Q. Does PMI conducts any exam for renewal of PMP®?
No, you will not be required to answer any exam if you earn and submit 60 PDUs within the 3-years’ time.
Q. What documentation would be required for PMP® renewal?
You don’t have to submit any documentation to PMI for your PMP® renewal until and unless you are selected for an audit. In case your PMP® renewal application falls for audit, you will be required to submit the documented proof for claiming your PDUs. For instance, if you have reported 60 PDUs for attending an e-learning course, you will have to submit the certificate that you obtain from your training institute when asked for the proof during the audit.
Q. What is the smallest fraction of PDU that I can report at once in the CCR system?
You can report as small as 0.25 PDU in CCRS, which denotes your 15 minutes of time spent in some professional learning or activity.
Q. How much does PMI charge for renewal of PMP® certification?
PMI charges USD $60 for PMI members and USD $150 for non-members as PMI certification renewal fee.
Q. What will happen if I fail to submit the PDUs after 3 years of earning my PMP®?
In this case, your PMP® status will become suspended. During this period, which lasts for a year, you can collect 60 PDUs and report to PMI to get your PMP® credential renewed. However, you won’t be able to claim yourself as a PMP® during the suspension phase.
Q. What happens if my PMP® certification expires?
If you fail to submit the required PDUs and the necessary fee even during your suspension period of one year, your PMP® certification will be considered as expired. You will then no longer be able to claim yourself as a PMP®, and you will have to start all over again with applying for PMP® and passing the PMP® exam in order to be called a PMP® again.
Q. Is there is an option to get an extension beyond the suspension expiration date?
Yes, but requesting an extension is possible only in case of medical illness, maternity leave, and military personnel.
Q. Why should I invest in renewing my PMP® certification?
PMP® certification is one of those few credentials that have got international recognition and are accepted worldwide. It brings in plenty of benefits for its holders. But getting PMP® certified is not an easy thing. The certification process is quite expensive, and the exam is also a challenging one to pass. As such, if you manage to pass the exam and get hold of the certification, it is always a wise decision to simply invest in its renewal by submitting the required PDUs and the renewal fee. This way, you don’t have to answer the exam again, and there won’t be any risk of losing the credential.
Q. Do I have to be a PMI member to renew my PMP®?
No, you need not necessarily be a PMI member to renew your PMP® certification. You can renew your PMP® even if you are not a member.
Q. What is the main purpose of the entire PMP® renewal purpose?
The industry keeps on growing, and to keep up with the new trends and practices, one must enhance the skills, capabilities, and knowledge from time to time. This is the very purpose of the PMP® renewal process, which requires the certified PMPs to stay up to date with the ongoing and developments in the profession of project management.
Q. Will I be provided with any certificate once I complete the Renew PMP® program from IntelliSteps?
Yes, you will be provided with a soft copy of the course completion/PDUs certificate, which you can use to claim your earned PDUs to PMI.
