    Hi All,

    In order to get the PDUs unlocked a candidate needs to fulfill the below 3 criteria:

    1.The candidate should have minimum 80% of attendance in the LVC sessions.
    2.The Self- Paced Learning content should be minimum 50% completed.
    3.One simulation test (min.score 80%) & One project to be completed.

    Hello Alisha,

    It was my understanding that by completing self-paced learning + Test + Project would suffice for PDU certification. Even though I have access to instructor lead sessions but the logistics are such that I cannot attend the sessions live. Rather, I download and am following along. Is the okay?

    Hi Modak,

    This should be fine as you have a genuine reason.
    Kindly submit project and we will review the same , if the other 2 criteria are satisfied we will go ahead and release the certificate.

    Regards,
    Priyamwada

    Hi,

    I enrolled on Sep 22, 2016. Does it mean that I've to submit both the projects for unlocking PDU? I've submitted one project.

    Would someone confirm if all above is complete when filling the exam form out it is worth the 35 PDUs needed...That's all I need to know.
    Thanks. Debbie Knight

    Hi Rubina,

    We recommend you to complete your project within 60 days from the date you have completed the instructor led online classes.

    In case if you have crossed this time limit you can complete the project at least 10 days prior to the course expiry date.

    Regards,
    Mukesh

    I am concerned, the class I attended was over mid-April and I have not completed a project or a simulation test. How to I know when the course expiry date is? I have signed up for another live class as I had to take time out from studying and felt and still feel unprepared to start a project.
    I am signed up for a class starting July 21. Please reply. Thank you.

    Hi Debbie ,

    You can check your access days left by clicking on the 3 dots on the course icon as mentioned below:

    upload_2017-7-15_10-54-11.png

    Also, as we can see you are our Expert class participant so you have 120 days to complete your project and submit to us.

    Hope this helps!

    Happy Learning!!

    Hi,

    You have two more criteria apart from live class attendance for unlocking the certificate

    1. Pass one simulation test with min.score 80%
    2. One project to be submitted

    Regards,
    Mukesh

    Hi, Priyamwada, can you please send me a link to attend one of the project-briefing class? I didn't receive any link after our last class.

    Hi,

    As soon as you login to WebEx we get your email id tracked in WebEx which is further maintained in our attendance trackers, so do not worry about attendance, as soon as you complete the below criteria your certificate will be unlocked:

    1.The Self- Paced Learning content should be minimum 50% completed.
    2. One simulation test (min.score 80%)
    3. One project to be completed.

    Happy Learning!!

    Hi,

    I couldn't attend any live session as there were none available post Aug'2017 and I was in mid of the course during that time. Also, my validity has expired now and I am not sure how to submit a project or what does it mean by a project. Need urgent guidance as I am trying to register for PMP exams with PMI. Please help.

    I was under the impression that one only needed to do the self-paced learning to 80%, and the LVC (live video class?) was optional. There's no way I or my other team members will be able to complete anything beyond the self-paced learning (and a project and a simulation test).

    Hi,
    I have unlocked my certificate just now. I can see in the certificate it is written I have 35 PDU now. But till which date this PDU will remain valid? I mean by when I have to take the actual PMP exam so that I can use the PDU that I got from the completion of the PMP course from Simplilearn?
